3. Carey Price (90 Overall)
Carey Price has been a top five goalie in the NHL for more than a decade. It is no secret that he is way out of his prime, but when games are on the line Price still has a major impact on games. This was especially seen this past year when he helped do the unthinkable and help carry his team all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals. Price was a major part in getting the Montreal Canadiens to the Stanley Cup Final before they were dispatched by the Tampa Bay Lightning.
It was shown on countless occasions during their fairytale run that age is just a number and you shouldn’t ever underestimate Carey Price.
Carey Price at a 90+ overall is nothing out of the normal and it will be interesting to see how he carries last seasons momentum into the 2021-2022 NHL season.
4. Marc-Andre Fleury (90 Overall)
I don’t think that there has been more buzz surrounding a goalie this offseason than with Marc-Andre Fleury. Fleury’s departure from the Vegas Golden Knights was a huge shock and the signing with the Chicago Blackhawks was an even bigger shock.
The Chicago Blackhawks aren’t going to be a team to mess around with this season. While I don’t see them winning the division, I do see them being playoff contenders. Anything less than a playoff birth would actually be a minor buzzkill.
That being said, I am very excited to see Marc-Andre Fleury at a 90 overall in NHL 22. Anything less than would have just been disrespectful to the future Hall of Fame goaltender. The Blackhawks have made lots of big moves this offseason which means playing as them in NHL 22 is going to be more fun than ever before. Marc-Andre Fleury is the reigning Vezina Trophy winner and a great goaltender to back you up in NHL 22.
