Prospect Pogge Progressing

The above is not a misprint. The Leafs actually have prospects with potential, particularly Pogge (pronounced POH-gey) who is to start the WJC in net for Canada.
That Pogge is even part of this elite group speaks of his progress, as he was a little known Western Hockey League goalie when the Leafs selected him. This season, Pogge has been arguably the best goalie in junior hockey and is leading the WHL in every goaltending category with a 22-5-0 record, a 1.53 goals-against average and a .928 save percentage to go with six shutouts.
Selected 90th overall in 2004 with the Leafs' first pick(ouch), he may be facing the Leafs' first rounder of 2005 Tuukka Rask, the standout Finnish goalie.

Later Eddie. It's been real.
