He did help Henrik a lot. No way Henrik has that kind of success if a calm veteran isn't rotating with him.

He's not Ken Dryden, but he was a pretty good goalie. Excellent announcer as well.

You are both right. There is no reason to bash Weekes just because Henk turned out to be much better. That is just a good thing. Kevin handled it perfectly and I'm sure that helped alot. Would some fans rather he bashed his time here?
