It's nice to have both Lack and Cannata in our system. Cannata is on pace to be "started ready" on the 7th year of Luongo's contract (gives him 2 AHL years and 2 years as an NHL back-up). Could be a nice transition if all goes well?
Physically, like I said earlier, he can move really well laterally for a bigger guy. He takes up a lot of the net but moves well to protect it too. His biggest weakness is playing the puck.
Cannata's size is a strength of his - plays a sound positional game. Like our two current goalies, he struggles with playing the puck.
