About a month ago I picked Tuukka Rask as the top goalie so far this season. He has been passed in the Vezina race by Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens. Price is posting a .938 saves percentage and a 1.95 GAA with a weaker defence in front of him then Rask has in Boston.
It is a myth that Team Canada has a weakness in goal for the 2014 Olympics. Perhaps they didn't have a goalie who was a serious contender in the 2013 Vezina race, but they have the top goalie in the league right now. Carey Price would be a strong choice to be the top goalie for Canada in the Olympics.
Price was a top draft pick in 2005 coming fifth overall. He was a successful junior goalie in international play. His development into a Vezina worthy goalie at the NHL level has been slower than some hoped. However at age 26, Price is only beginning to enter his prime years. He could be a top NHL goalie for many years to come. Right now he is the leading contender for the Vezina Trophy.
