NHL Network unveils their top 10 list of NHL goalies.

The NHL Network has ranked the top 10 best goalies in the league, and it has sparked a ton of online discussion.

Each and every offseason the NHL and the NHL Network rank the best players at each position in an effort to reward the players who have had outstanding performances and as well as to park discussion around the sport during the down period for the league.

The NHL Network has done so once again and this time it is the goalies getting the top 10 treatment. As is almost always the case there will be plenty of disagreement over who is on the list and what ranking they received, but that is the whole point of these lists afterall.

Most of the names on this list won't come as a surprise to anyone, but I do suspect we are going to get a lot of disagreement about how exactly they were ranked.

Here are the top 10 goalies, according to the NHL and the NHL Network:

#1 Andrei Vasilevsky (Tampa Bay Lightning)

#2 Igor Shesterkin (New York Rangers)

#3 Ilya Sorokin (New York Islanders)

#4 Connor Hellebuyck (Winnipeg Jets)

#5 Juuse Saros (Nashville Predators)

#6 Linus Ullmark (Boston Bruins)

#7 Jake Oettinger (Dallas Stars)

#8 Alexandar Georgiev (Colorado Avalanche)

#9 Filip Gustavsson (Minnesota Wild)

#10 Thatcher Demko (Vancouver Canucks)

Let us know what you think of the ranking in the comments.
