We all hope he makes the WJC team this year; it could be a real springboard for his development. On the other side of his potential, he certainly has some weaknesses (Size?) that make him anything but a sure thing.

He'd be a real wild card in a keeper league. Keep in mind we won't start seeing returns on this player for probably another 3 or 4 years.
I think you're bang on... remember when everyone thought Justin Pogge was a surefire NHL starter? He could still make it (had decent AHL numbers in a smallish sample size last year) but he's bounced around the minors for a few years now ever since his performance at the WJC a few years back. Just goes to show how random and hard to project goalies are.
