In this edition of the hotstove, we share our thoughts on which goaltender should be leading the Vezina race with just a handful of games to go.

Todd Cordell

I think Sergei Bobrovsky is the most obvious and deserving candidate.

He leads the league in wins, goals against average, save percentage, is right near the top in 5v5 save percentage, and the Blue Jackets allow more scoring chances than Montreal, Washington and some of the other teams top goaltenders play behind. Essentially he has put up better numbers despite facing more quality shots.

Adam French

Sergei Bobrovsky

I know he has a very strong defense to work with, but he has the numbers and it's his to lose. He has been the most consistent of the top performing goaltenders and hasn't had the ups and downs of any of the other challengers (Dubnyk/Price/Holtby/Talbot). From all accounts, the Jackets are not going to rest him much down the stretch as they have a chance to win the Division and so I think it's safe to say he will probably lead the league in Wins. Which really shouldn't matter so much, but it does to voters.

Barring a meltdown, this is his to lose...and we'll have to deal with a world where Sergei Bobrovsky is tied for having the most Vezina Trophies since the 2004 Lockout.

Peter Tessier

I think there could have been debate here awhile ago but I think it has to be Bobrovsky. If you look at all the stats for goalies, traditional ones, see where he stands:
GAA #1
Save % #1
Wins #1
Shutout #4

The guys having a career year and really if you use those four categories as your criteria Holtby and then maybe Darling are the only ones to come close to challenging. After that imagine were the Blue Jackets would be without that level of play? Heck Torts might get a Jack Adams because of goaltending. Perhaps he's a Hart candidate too?
