Follow on Twitter More than a few goaltending situations have presented themselves as difficult to rank this season. The owners of Sergei Bobrovsky, Devan Dubnyk, Braden Holtby or other such consistent stalwarts should be thanking their lucky stars that they don't have to deal with any of the many tricky circumstances in NHL creases. Anecdotally, it certainly feels like a unique season for goaltender value, with fewer players offering consistency and reliability -- even if it was only for modest fantasy
