I think he was overrated by a lot of Calgary fans. He's the type of goalie that's a fan favourite and won at the major junior level to increase his profile but wasn't necessarily going to develop into an NHL starter. Guys like Krahn and Sabourin have a lot more in terms of size and butterfly technique than Szuper did. The Flames didn't give him a qualifying offer this summer which made him an UFA. He signed in St. Louis and they had him in the AHL until some recent injury problems.

In our current system I would say McElhinney might be slightly overrated by some fans and I think some underrate Medvedev.
