Give the kid a shot, atleast we will know what he is made of going forward next season.
And if you are Holtby. here is your chance, you play lights out for 2 months and you can be a NHL lifer. Who says he cant go on a Ward/Roy type playoff run with the team he has infront of him. Hes playing with the houses money now.
who says he can't? who says he can? thats the point.
you say holtby would have won the two ahl championships? what evidence do you have that he could have even held up to play all the games? there is none. winning with a great team still requires doing it. ask detroit. there's also the jr championship and the undefeated playoff run that ended with an injury. those were gimmes too?
playing with house money means that he has nothing to lose. if he has to play and stinks it up, you think that was nothing to lose?
you are just wrong on that account. if ovechkin scores 8 goals in the first six games of the playoffs and the caps lose 4 games to 2 because holtby couldnt stop a beachball, do you really think thats house money?
