In Montreal, if we got a good game, or anything positive from him, it was a bonus, he was the backup with no expectations....in St Louis he will be their Carey Price, should be interesting in the upcoming season...
I guess so. I just don't see where the pressure is going to be coming from in St.Louis. Certainly not the GM, coaches, and teammates. The fans/media? Maybe if they had given up someone like Backes or Oshie (who have had the chance to endear themselves as fan favourites of the St.Louis public), instead of someone who simply represented a piece of the future that they saw for 7 games, they'd expect more from him. Playing in the tougher Western conference might prove to be more difficult, but I don't think "pressure" is the proper phenomenon to explore here.
