    A check in on the 10 most expensive goalies of season 7 - The 10 goalies who were bid on the most and are still in the CHL.

    [​IMG]

    That picture may be from the NHL, but that's pretty much how quite a few of the top 10 goalies have been playing net: lying down and taking a nap.

    With week 4 underway, we’re going to take a look at how the 10 most expensive netminders in bidding (who are still in the CHL) are doing.


    1) @Battz ($5,000,000, Current team: Swift Current Broncos [14-15-2])


    Week 1: 0-4-0, 5.27 GAA, 70.8 SV%

    Week 2: N/A

    Week 3: 1-0-0, 0 GAA, 100 SV%

    Week 4: N/A

    TOTAL: 1-4-0, 4.21 GAA, 75.6 SV%


    Season 7 path: Spokane Chiefs → Gatineau Olympiques → Swift Current Broncos

    Worth the money?: No.


    Battz is the biggest bust of the goalie group, and honestly, I was predicting this before the season began. In the scouting games I saw Battz in, he didn’t show anything spectacular. Like Dragon said in his roster review, I don’t know why Dylan spent 5 million on a guy who never played goalie when there were so many better, proven options (Battz has never played goalie). Battz is now rotting on TC, and even with the 14 save shutout last week, his stats are still pretty gross. For those of you who still don’t know, Battz wasn’t done any favors due to Spokane’s joke of a team (again, 131 goals allowed in three weeks). Perhaps he could’ve become a top goalie on another team, but he’s still nowhere near worth it as long as he’s a part of TC.


    2) @Insane_girl_Qc85 ($4,500,000, Current team: North Bay Battalion [17-12-2])


    Week 1: 0-3-1, 4.28 GAA, 74.3 SV%

    Week 2: 4-1-0, 2.40 GAA, 81.9 SV%

    Week 3: 3-2-0, 2.19 GAA, 87.9 SV%

    Week 4: 1-1-0, 2.50 GAA, 77.3 SV%

    TOTAL: 8-7-1, 2.85 GAA, 81.5 SV%


    Season 7 path: Niagara Ice Dogs → North Bay Battalion

    Worth the money?: No.


    Insanegirl’s 4.5 million contract just isn’t worth it to me. She was looking like a bust early on, but was then picked up by North Bay off of waivers and has turned into their number one goaltender. Her week 2 comeback wasn’t so impressive given the teams she played, but in week 3, her best week, she beat out Hamilton and Saginaw. That being said, she did lose to Peterborough and London, with her stats being atrocious. Insanegirl seems to be either a lights out or an “I let everything in” goaltender, without many average performances in between. She did manage to shut out Windsor in week 4, but given her inconsistency problem, especially against strong teams, she’s not worth 4.5 million, yet.


    3) @Tangelis ($4,500,000, Current team: London Knights [18-11-2], AGM)


    Week 1: 3-1-2, 2.38 GAA, 87.9 SV%

    Week 2: 3-2-0, 2.69 GAA, 83.9 SV%

    Week 3: 5-0-0, 2.39 GAA, 86.8 SV%

    Week 4: 3-0-0, 1.67 GAA, 86.1 SV%

    TOTAL: 14-4-1, 2.36 GAA, 86.4 SV%


    Season 7 path: N/A

    Worth the money?: Yes.


    Honestly, how was Tangelis not the most expensive goalie, when 5 teams were bidding on him? 5 million for Battz, and the same price as Insanegirl, both of whom were unproven netminders? It’s appropriate that Tangelis was named AGM, otherwise he would’ve been called up instantly. In season 6 he posted a 2.06 / 85.6 line with the Halifax Mooseheads, and his numbers are similar this season. Tangelis will remain one of the top goalies in this league, and at 4.5 million I’d almost call it a steal, he could’ve easily gone for another 500k atleast.


    4) @Jordanbrown1891 ($4,500,000, Current team: Flint Firebirds [11-18-1], AGM)


    Week 1: 2-3-0, 3.85 GAA, 77.9 SV%

    Week 2: 4-0-1, 1.74 GAA, 88.5 SV%

    Week 3: 3-2-0, 3.98 GAA, 77.0 SV%

    Week 4: 0-1-1, 2.45 GAA, 86.5 SV%

    TOTAL: 9-6-2, 3.11 GAA, 81.5 SV%


    Season 7 path: N/A

    Worth the money?: No.


    Jordan is the third out of the top 4 goalies to attract a massive contract without any stats to back it. His stats are similar to Insanegirl’s, and I also consider Jordan as not worth it. He normally struggles heavily against top teams, posting a 72.7 SV% against Saginaw, 68.2 against Mississauga, 81.3 against Ottawa, 78.6 against Hamilton, 75 against Mississauga again, a shutout vs Ottawa, and a 62.5 against Windsor. Other than Ottawa, he hasn’t been able to perform at a 4.5 million dollar level against any other top team (and even with their good record, Ottawa isn’t even considered an elite team this season). He does fine against easier teams, but tougher teams are a no-go for him.


    5) @akizzle92 ($3,750,000, Current team: Victoriaville Tigres [24-5-1])


    Week 1: 4-0-0, 1.00 GAA, 92.6 SV%

    Week 2: 2-2-0, 3.15 GAA, 81.1 SV%

    Week 3: 3-0-0, 2.30 GAA, 82.1 SV%

    Week 4: 1-1-0, 2.55 GAA, 86.1 SV%

    TOTAL: 10-3-0, 2.23 GAA, 85.2 SV%


    Season 7 path: N/A

    Worth the money?: Neutral.


    Akizzle has played well in limited action, posting an 85 save percentage on a powerhouse team in Victoriaville. His stats do occasionally slightly dip against tougher teams, but overall he is consistently solid. His stats are worth the money, but the “limited action” part is what makes me neutral on his worth. An almost 4 million goalie needs to be able to play more than 4 games a week. If Victoriaville didn’t have Landamov, I don’t know who their second goalie would be. I’m not sure if Kizzle’s availability is not good, or if Mike is preferring to use Landamov more often, but either way, Kizzle should be playing more games at his current price.


    6) @Key_Tops ($3,500,000, Current team: Medicine Hat Tigers [14-13-3])


    Week 1: 1-2-3, 2.54 GAA, 83.5 SV%

    Week 2: 4-1-0, 1.20 GAA, 91.7 SV%

    Week 3: 1-2-0, 3.02 GAA, 79.5 SV%

    Week 4: 0-2-0, 5.51 GAA, 71.8 SV%

    TOTAL: 6-7-3, 2.58 GAA, 83.4 SV%


    Season 7 path: N/A

    Worth the money?: Yes.

    I don’t care how bad his record looks, nor do I care how his week 3 and current week 4 stats look. Key_Tops is an elite goaltender, and he WILL rebound; I expect that save percentage to rise to around 85. Anyone who has played Key_Tops knows that he’s basically unbeatable. He has great movement and is tough to do anything against (although his week 3/4 stats may not necessarily show it). With great stats overall, I'm not sure how Key_Tops is 4 games under .500, he should atleast be even (before these 2 week 4 losses he's still 2 games under .500). I mean, just look at the man’s games against top teams: 3 GA vs Wheat Kings, 1 GA vs the Hitmen, shutout against the Giants, 2 GA vs the Thunderbirds. Generally, Key_Tops is not fazed by top teams.


    7) @TheMainElement ($3,250,000, Current team: Victoria Royals [12-16-3])


    Week 1: 0-0-1, 4.09 GAA, 78.3 SV%

    Week 2: 0-1-0, 4.02 GAA, 76.5 SV%

    Week 3: N/A

    Week 4: N/A

    TOTAL: 0-1-1, 4.06 GAA, 77.5 SV%


    Season 7 path: Saint John Seadogs → Victoria Royals

    Worth the money?: No.


    Element is rotting away on TC, with a solid two games on his record. The guy received two strikes in what looks like the preseason? Come on man. Element is the complete opposite of Kizzle; Element had great numbers in limited action in season 6, but it didn’t translate here. In fact, it looks like he won’t even suit up for 10 games this year, a real shame. Enjoy your money while you sit in the locker room all season.


    8) @Aztec066 ($3,000,000, CONTRACT NULLIFIED, Current team: Owen Sound Attack [10-17-4], GM)


    Week 1: 3-0-1, 2.75 GAA, 75.0 SV%

    Week 2: 1-3-0, 5.25 GAA, 75.0 SV%

    Week 3: 2-2-0, 4.11 GAA, 76.1 SV%

    Week 4: 1-2-0, 3.00 GAA, 80.9 SV%

    TOTAL: 7-7-1, 3.81 GAA, 76.4 SV%


    Season 7 path: N/A

    Worth the money?: No (atleast when he took up cap).


    With Kucher getting banned, Aztec was bumped up from AGM to GM, resetting his contract to 0, which is good, because he wasn’t worth the 3 million he was offered. He has a subpar save percentage, a high GAA, and honestly, a decent record for such a bad team. That being said, he gets hammered by good teams, like Hamilton (75 SV%), when he plays them. Looking at his game history, he plays mostly easy teams, or atleast teams that aren’t legitimate cup contenders, which makes his statline that much more abysmal (he’s played Hamilton twice, and he played once against London and North Bay, but that was before their records got better). That being said, I don’t think he’s getting much help from his defenseman, like a 75 SV% and a 5.25 GAA? Defensemen? Wanna block some shots?


    9) @crazeematt1 ($2,500,000, Current team: Sudbury Wolves [13-12-6])


    Week 1: 2-1-0, 3.29 GAA, 71.4 SV%

    Week 2: 1-1-0, 2.50 GAA, 68.8 SV%

    Week 3: 5-1-0, 2.20 GAA, 81.3 SV%

    Week 4: 2-0-1, 3.23 GAA, 85.1 SV%

    TOTAL: 10-3-1, 2.69 GAA, 79.8 SV%


    Season 7 path: Hamilton Bulldogs → Sudbury Wolves

    Worth the money?: No.


    Starting season 7, I had limited time to play, which resulted in simple mistakes and me diving out of the way to let pucks in (unintentionally of course) in the few games I could actually fit into my schedule. That being said, week 3 I had a comeback, facing 1st lines for most of the week, and while I wasn’t outstanding, I was somewhat consistent. Personally, I feel like I fit in more with the Wolves than the Bulldogs (maybe it’s due to the fact that I actually have to practice now, I don’t know) and I feel it’s reflected in my stats with them, atleast so far. Due to how incredibly shaky my start to the season was, the fact that due to my schedule I kept going against non-top tier teams, and the fact that I managed to get a -1 +/- against Flint, I am not worth the 2.5 million spent on me.


    10) @T_B_61 ($2,500,000, Current team: Val d’Or Foreurs [22-7-2])


    Week 1: 1-1-1, 2.92 GAA, 77.5 SV%

    Week 2: 1-1-0, 5.50 GAA, 73.8 SV%

    Week 3: 0-1-1, 3.72 GAA, 71.4 SV%
    Week 4: N/A

    TOTAL: 2-3-2, 3.87 GAA, 74.5 SV%

    Season 7 path: Cape Breton Screaming Eagles → Spokane Chiefs → Val d’or Foreurs

    Worth the money?: No.


    T_B was a proven goalie in Peterborough in season 6, posting an 82.5 SV% while facing 349 shots, but in season 7 he simply couldn’t get it going. He is now sitting on Val d’Or’s TC, and there’s really nothing more I can say about him, other than that he clearly is not worth the money.

    None of them are worth the money when I'm sitting at 1.75...... I'm kidding. But seriously one of these teams said they couldn't afford me but they overpaid for a bust.

    Another great write up. Good that you can be critical of yourself. Not many can. I like the idea of doing players who went for the minimum.

    I have seen you play, I for one know you are a solid goalie, its hard to judge a goalie, cause goalies cant do shit without a team.
