Another note on Rawlings, the amount of improvement he experienced over the course of last season was crazy. i remember the exhibition game, watching him struggle to move laterally and he looked awful when trying to get up and go down. but he quickly got up to speed and was one of the better goalies in the league.

If he starts where he left off and develops consistency, then he will be great. If he stays out his tenure, he will likely develop into a better goalie than thiessen, or at put up better numbers.

it just pains me to think of how good he could be or how much better we could've been last year with thiessen and rawlings splitting time, thiessen would obviously have gotten more time, but could've taken some nights off and rawlings wouldn't have been shoved into the spot light so quickly and would've had more time to develop before taking the reigns, or he would've been redshirted and given a year to adjust to the college lifestyle and gotten a feel for the atmosphere before even having to play any games.
