When people talk about the top NHL goaltenders, they think of Martin Brodeur, Miikka Kiprusoff and Roberto Luongo. This year, another goaltender should be added to that list; Craig Anderson of the Colorado Avalanche. Craig Anderson has started the season on a tear, leading the league in shots faced and near the top in save percentage and goals-against average. The best news is that the Avalanche was able to sign Craig Anderson as a free agent, not costing the team any draft picks or players. As any hockey fan knows, a great goaltender is essential if your team wants to compete for a Stanley Cup. The addition of Craig Anderson makes the Avalanche a team to watch closely as they make a run towards the playoffs.
