#3 Ville Husso – St. Louis Blues
2021-22 Stats: .919 SV%, 2.56 GAA, 25-7-6
Last Contract: $750,000 AAV
Potential Next Season: Starter/Tandem Goaltender
Ville Husso hadn’t been given much of a chance to shine in St. Louis until this season where he had a superb performance in a tandem with Jordan Binnington.
Husso ended up playing a few more games than Binnington and had superior stats.
Husso’s performance last season proved he’s ready to take on the bulk of a season as a starter, but another year in a tandem wouldn’t hurt either. He’s still young for a starting goaltender and could be a star with the team he signs with for the next few years.
Ville Husso is the type of goalie the Toronto Maple Leafs could really use in a tandem right now. He has enough experience to show that he can be an NHL starter, but he doesn’t have enough experience to earn a big pay day yet.
If the Toronto Maple Leafs can also get a veteran goaltender to help Husso along, I’d be very excited to see him in a Leafs uniform.
