Can the kid make it, sure, and I am hoping for that but I see a long road ahead for him from the 8 to 10 times I've seen him this year.
I expect better than that from you Jackson

One years doesn't make anyone a star, or a failure. Last year the kid was a worldbeater, this year he's struggled. This is not uncommon for a young goalie.

This year might end up being his worst, performance wise. But then that also could be the best thing for him at this point.
