Whats the rush? Can the kid play...your damn right. But he's 21 years old...most goalies don't sniff the NHL until they are 25-28. Id rather have Hackett play 50 games in the AHL for the next year even 2 years than sit behind Backstrom and play 20 in the NHL.
Like a lot of our prospects theres no rush with Hackett. Which is fine right now. Don't ruin him early let him develop into the big time goalie he certainly could be in the future.
