GOALIES

NAME HOMETOWN CLUB

Braden HoltbyLloydminster, Sask.Washington Capitals (NHL)

*# Roberto LuongoMontreal, Que.Vancouver Canucks (NHL)

Carey PriceAnahim Lake, B.C.Montreal Canadiens (NHL)

Mike SmithKingston, Ont.Phoenix Coyotes (NHL)

LOCK: No one

BUBBLE: All the above and maybe throw in Cam Ward of the Carolina Hurricanes and the legendary Martin Brodeur of the New Jersey Devils.

Alex PietrangeloKing City, Ont.St. Louis Blues (NHL)

* Brent SeabrookTsawwassen, B.C.Chicago Blackhawks (NHL)

Marc StaalThunder Bay, Ont.New York Rangers (NHL)

PK SubbanToronto, Ont.Montreal Canadiens (NHL)

Marc-âdouard VlasicMontreal, Que.San Jose Sharks (NHL)

* Shea WeberSicamous, B.C.Nashville Predators (NHL)

LOCKS: Weber, Subban, Keith, Doughty, Seabrook

BUBBLE: Pietrangelo and Letang have the inside track and after that there are all kinds of factors and formulae that can see a player move in or out. For instance, if the D is young, look for Dan Boyle to get a long look for veteran presence. If management thinks they're too offensive, a steady influence such as Karl Alzner could be a fit.
