How does someone like Johansen have a right to play in the NHL, but this kid doesn't? Because Johansen was more recruited and touted than Hunwick?

It bothers me when someone says he doesn't have the right to do it. If anyone has earned the right, it is Hunwick. Guy was a walk on, put in the hard work necessary to become a starter, and is now th best goaltender (stats wise) to have ever played at UM. That should mean something. Why hold back from playing him? Who knows what we have in him, until he is given the shot to prove it.
