2002-2003 NHL Goalie Preview
Published in early September 2002

This article is going to analyze the "goalie depth" for each of the 30 NHL teams for 2002-03.  The depth of a team is based on 4 goalies :

The teams have been ranked following this method;

bulletOne goalie has been selected to fill one position.  A goalie can't be at 2 places.
bulletThe goalies have been ranked from 1 to 5 based on their ability to fill the respective roles.
