This does not line up with my "Ullmark will be elite" narrative.

If that article had a mouth, it would say "Ullmark who?"

This article lacks any real credibility.  It lists Fred Andersen as the 7th best goalie.  Last season he was 13th in Save% at .917 and 25th in GAA at 2.77.

These are mediocre numbers at best.  He should be between 13-18.

Yes but the authors live in Toronto and they’ve heard a lot about what the Toronto media says.

Wait are you saying there is a Toronto bias in hockey media coverage.  No way.  It must be all those Cups they have won since 1967.

I don't hate that ranking for Freddy. For a large chunk of last season, he was simply outstanding. I'd probably have him at ~10 rather than 7, but I don't see that (or anything else on that list) as egregious. 

I actually just looked, and Andersen is 10th in GSAA - sorta like GAA but taking into account shot volume/location, and then comparing it to what a league average goalie would do. I believe he was top 5 in that metric until February or March.

Other nitpicks: 
I'd drop Vasi to 4, Price to 5, behind Bishop, Bob, and Gibson. I'd move up Fleury, drop Helle fairly far. Binnington lower, Raanta higher. Quick lower right now, he was miserable last year independent of his team's play.

I don't have a deep knowledge of all of the goalies in the NHL, but this seems to be a reasonable list with a little bit of evidence/explanation for each ranking.  Any piece like this, unless you copy and paste a statistical chart, is going to based on a lot of opinion and possibly some bias.
