I've gone on and on about Peter Budaj's untapped and unlimited potential, but it doesn't really matter.

The main purpose of goaltenders is to win.

All Budaj has *ever* done is win.

Whether it was with St. Mike's in the OHL, as Slovakia's starting goaltender in the World Junior Championships or even as an upstart rookie in Hershey, the kid knows how to win and has nerves of steel. For young goaltenders, those are two attributes you simply cannot teach.

He'll be better than both David Aebischer and Phillipe Sauve once fully developed, in my opinion. But then again, I used to run and stretch with Budaj every Saturday and Sunday morning and got along great with the guy, so I'm biased.
