Very solid and accurate. Not sure Holtby is the starter in Vancouver, Igor S from NYR should be in Tier 2. Delia in 4.

Meh. Healthy Bishop from two years ago for sure, but now, with all his injuries, he's just a shadow of his former self

I think that Hart could be higher, probably tier 1. Also from the impression I had of bernier this year I heard he played well on a bad team, so I would put him maybe tier 3. Also for CBJ Korpisalo is the is the starter.

Sleeping on Saros -- especially if this is in order. 2nd worst starter in the league?? His goalie stats were one of the best in the league after the Christmas break and he's been consistent for 4 seasons now -- easily mid-tier 3.

Well yeah I'm going under the assumption he's healthy. If health concerns are a cause for tier demotion then you should move Price down a tier as well.

He was backup from most of what we've seen so far from him. But yeah, I could probably put him slightly higher

Murray and Holtby both deserve to be in tier 4. Ullmark had a .915 save percentage and .930 at ES so he shouldn’t be in tier 4.

Price has the ability to bounce back after injuries, Bishop's body is just falling apart & I don't think that he'll ever get back to what he was

Bishop had a .920 last season which was a down year from the previous (.934). He's hardly washed at this point

Fair, he really only got a look at the starter's role this past season - but he looked good in that role.

You could argue similarly against Grubauer considering he's never played more than 37 games during a regular season throughout his entire career -- not really starting numbers, but he's at the top of tier 3 here. And his goalie stats are actually very similar to Saros.

Hart is easily 1st tier

Saros > Murray (switch the two)

I think Bishop should be teir two if he ca stay healthy when he returns from injury, but Bernier should be a tier 3 IMO, he played pretty well its not is fault the team in front of him wasn't good.

I think kosk gets overlooked and is very underrated. I’d have him in the same tier as markstrom both had very comparable numbers last year.

Based on last season, I don’t think binnington is a 2nd tier goalie. He should be in the rest of the 3rd tier average starters

He's probably a low-end 2nd tier/high-end 3rd tier, at this point there's no big difference

This is awesome.

I would switch Price with Lehner though (and not cuz im a bruins fan, just look at their recent play) and move up Bishop a bit

Oh yeah and move Binner down. He is so overrated like Murray was, and see where you have Murray now.

Fair enough, semantics at this point, I can agree with he’s at the cusp level

Overall a very good fair job
