My All-Star Ballot: Eastern Conference Goalies

Which Eastern Conference Goalies are most deserving of a spot in the 2015 All Star Game?

My All-Star Ballot: Eastern Conference Goalies

With the 2015 NHL All Star Game a month away and the league back in full swing from the Christmas hiatus, I think it's a good time to look at this year's prospective all-stars. There will be 21 players selected from each conference: 12 forwards, six defensemen, and three goalies. I will do a six-part series, analyzing each group in both conferences. Remember, this is not a definitive list of who will make the all-star team, just my ballot for all it's worth.

Note: Statistics are through the games played Tuesday, December 23rd.

Here are my Eastern Conference Goalies:

Marc-Andre Fleury, Pittsburgh Penguins

Fleury is having a season worthy of the Vezina Trophy. He leads the NHL with six shutouts and is second in wins with 19 for the Metropolitan Division leaders. Even more impressive is his 92.8 save percentage, which would be a career high if the season ended today. Still, Fleury and his new contract wont be judged until the playoffs come around and we see how he performs.

Carey Price, Montreal Canadiens

Tied for second in the league with 19 wins, Price has recovered well from his knee injury that knocked him out of the playoffs last spring. He's sixth in save percentage amongst goalies with at least 15 starts, and he has started the most games in the league with 28.

Roberto Luongo, Florida Panthers

Luongo has been a huge part of Florida's surprising start to this season. He ranks fifth among goalies with at least 15 starts in save percentage and is right behind Fleury in goals against average. Not many expected it, but Luongo has had a very good season so far and is definitely worthy of another all-star appearance.
