If he has the metal to be an NHL goalie he will not get all hung up on having a bad game here and there.Ray Charles can see this cat has it in spades [ and ray is blind and dead ].Let the young man have a legit shot at # 1 and if you want to worry about a goalies mental health being fragile.....worry about Leighton or Boosh then.
You do not get it do you? Michael Leighton is the NHL starting goalie. Brian Boucher is the backup. Bobrovsky is an AHL goalie who with training and experience could be an NHL goalie, Backlund will be his backup. IF Bobrovsky shows progress he might get a callup at the midway point to get some NHL level experience but it still is a good idea to bring him along appropriately.
