I think that's an unfair characterization of him. Any goaltender's confidence is going to get shot being brought up in a mismanaged organization, while playing behind a sketchy defense for years.

I agree with you that he shouldn't have been in the NHL so early. Even though he had success, it was too much, too soon. Columbus has a habit of rushing their prospects.

I mean, the guy has had success pretty much everywhere he's played. It would be interesting to see him play for a good defensive team again.
