Bobrovsky will go to the AHL first. They won't stick him in the NHL. I'm actually excited to see him there. Granted it's his first chance in North America, but he will be a part of a more youthful, brand new AHL team with better skating and hopefully better overall playing (though coaching could still be an issue). The talent level will also be lesser. Bobrovsky gets into a perfect situation to adjust his game to NA.
I agree. He should be in the AHL. I dont care if he comes in and blows everyone away in preseason. stick him in the AHL and let him play every night. I am thrilled we are finally taking the goaltending position seriously. Its about effing time.
