And we already have Curry, Thiessen, Modig for the AHL/ECHL slots. It would have been either Pechurskiy in Europe or Modig in Europe. I think I'd rather see what this Swedish kid can do in the AHL.

Pechurskiy is very young. Goalies take long to develop. I am not worried about this.

Agreed. If he wasn't going to get at least half the starts in the WHL, this is the next best place for him to go, IMO.
