Here are the top goaltenders ranked in descending order based on their value in 10 or 12 team "Banger Leagues." Wins, goals-against-average, save percentage and shutouts are recorded for goaltenders.

Rank Player Team
1 Braden Holtby WAS
2 Carey Price MTL
3 Jonathan Quick LA
4 Corey Crawford CHI
5 Ben Bishop TB
6 Martin Jones SJ
7 Cory Schneider NJ
8 John Gibson ANA
9 Henrik Lundqvist NYR
10 Jake Allen STL
11 Roberto Luongo FLA
12 Devan Dubnyk MIN

Price is a better goalie than Holtby, but Washington is a far superior team compared to Montreal. Forty-eight wins for a goaltender is absolutely absurd, and the Caps have the pieces to make it happen again.

Gibson and Allen are both the undisputed No. 1 netminders now thanks to offseason trades of Frederik Andersen and Brian Elliott.

Rank Player Team
13 Matt Murray PIT
14 Tuukka Rask BOS
15 Marc-Andre Fleury PIT
16 Petr Mrazek DET
17 Brian Elliott CGY
18 Pekka Rinne NAS
19 Cam Talbot EDM
21 Robin Lehner BUF
22 Craig Anderson OTT
23 Frederik Andersen TOR
24 Michal Neuvirth PHI

Murray was fantastic in the postseason, but Fleury has such a long track record of success. If possible, draft the tandem back-to-back to ensure you have every Pittsburgh start.

Anderson may be overlooked as a 35-year-old, but he could be in line for his best season over the past few years. A full season of Dion Phaneuf will significantly help the blue line, and Guy Boucher is a major upgrade over Dave Cameron as Ottawa's bench boss.

Rank Player Team
25 Steve Mason PHI
26 Semyon Varlamov COL
26 Jaroslav Halak NYI
28 Thomas Greiss NYI
29 Connor Hellebuyck WPG
30 Sergei Bobrovsky CLB
31 Mike Smith ARI
32 Antti Niemi DAL
33 Kari Lehtonen DAL
34 Ryan Miller VAN
35 Cam Ward CAR
36 Andrei Vasilevskiy TB
37 Ondrej Pavelec WPG
38 James Reimer FLA
39 Carter Hutton STL
40 Jimmy Howard DET

At this point, you're either choosing a No. 1 goalie on a poor team, or a timeshare goalie on a decent team. It's ideal if you can get both goalies of a split, such as Neuvirth/Mason or Halak/Greiss.

Colorado ranked at or near the bottom of every major possession statistic last season. With Patrick Roy out the door, Varlamov should only improve.
