Who in your opinion is the best CURRENTLY ACTIVE NHL goalie for any team? My clear choice would be Braden Holtby of the Washington Capitals. Holtby has a 21-16-1 record this season with a .928 save percentage. Though he is young, Holtby is likely the most talented goalie currently in the league.

The Nashville Predators have really started to prove they are an all-around force of a team, and a lot of that strength comes from how impressive and solid Pekka Rinne is between the pipes.

Rinne, at just 29 years old, could be a future Vezina Trophy winner in the making because of talent.

Nashville"s 6"5" goalie uses his size to his advantage and often seems like a solid brick wall to opposing teams.

Rinne has started strong with nine wins in 16 games, posting a .933 save percentage and three shutouts thus far.

I don't disagree that Renne is a good goalie, because he is. Braden Holtby is a Stanley Cup winning team caliber goalie and will only get better as he gets older. The Predators need more than just a good goalie, because they choked in the playoffs last season. The Capitals have a good, strong and solid lineup consisting of rookies such as Andre Burakovsky and Evgeny Kuznetsov, as well as veterans such as Nicklas Backstrom, Brooks Orpik and Alex Ovechkin.
