While the battle between Gerald Coleman
and Jonathan Boutin
in jockeying for position for the title of "goaltender of the future" continues to rage on, [url=http://www.sm-liiga.fi/tulospalvelu.asp?palvelu=2&raportti=29685]Karri Ramo
may very well be winning the war.[/url]
Today Ramo once again stood on his head to carry his attrocious Pelicans SM-liiga team to a shutout 2-0 victory over Tappara in which he stopped 42 of 42 shots. That's impressive. Especially when you consider the woeful band of players in front of him were outshot 42-18.
Ramo now has a .919 save percentage and a 3.23 GAA in the SM-liiga, against full grown men, on a team which sits dead last on the SM-liiga table. His statistical dominance becomes even more interesting when you begin to take a look at what he's accomplished at the Junior A level for the Pelicans this season.
