The Vancouver Canucks goaltending situation can be categorized into three commonly-used categories.
- Good: Thatcher Demko has been one of the best goalies in hockey over his last 12 starts. He has a 7-4-1 record and a .939 save percentage since February 13th. The only goaltender with a better save percentage over that same span is Minnesota Wild rookie netminder Kaapo Kahkonen (9-1-0, .940 SV%)

- Bad: Braden Holtby has been a massive disappointment this season in Vancouver.
