Uh, let's stop using this excuse right now shall we? Successful goaltenders play a lot. What he did 2 years ago in Junior is irrelevant to the Flyers series.

His performance has been up and down, he has much promise long term, but still things to figure out at the NHL level. Let's leave it at that.
