Wait, what? The season before last? When he played all of one game?

He played 8 games over a span of 5 years before this year. That tells us nothing.

The test for goaltenders has always been and will always be whether than can adjust to shooters that actually scout him and get to know his tendencies. The hockey world is littered with goalies who have wowed in the first year or 2 of their established careers and have petered out once shooters get familiar with them.

I respectfully, but completely, disagree.
