    I don't want to "make him look bad". That's a silly thing to say and if you read the post fully (which you clearly didn't) you'd see I spoke to that. This is the type of hyperbole that keeps you from seeing the point.

    Look, you guys can do whatever ridiculous things you want, I'll choose to be patient and take it start by start and hope he does well.

    You all can anoint him Jesus because he saves and make the cotton candy vendor the backup because Shesty is gonna play 81 games and it's only fair to the NHL to let them face a scrub once.

    (See, I can be hyperbolic, too!)

    Why can't both things be true? He has had a stellar KHL and AHL career. Neither of those are the NHL. I'm pretty confident he'll have a great NHL future. Today he's a goalie who's played 8 games and should be judged as such.

    If it's midnight, and say "The sun isn't out" and you say "but it was out yesterday and will be out tomorrow" and I say "Yes but right now it's dark"... Guess what? We're both right.
    But can fans get excited when their eyes see a prospect with a lot of upside and is playing great in the nhl level

    Again, it's one thing to be excited... What's happening here is beyond that.

    Shesty is going to go on the IR with chaffing for all the hand jobs he's getting.

    My point isn't that he can flop, at all.

    But whatever not worth discussing.

    And sometimes, the shiny new toy is as good as it seemed from just looking at the picture on the box. Right now, Igor is that toy.

    Shesty has earned every stroke. Henrik has had that hj for many, many years and we never got the happy ending.
