Irving had slightly worse numbers this year with his injury without his injury he has much better numbers. I think he has shown he is nhl ready.
I think if Washington didn't have brutal goaltending and injuries Holtby probably doesn't get called up. Lets also keep in mind Holtby isn't due to become a group 6 this year either since he's 2 years younger than Irving.

I'd like to see a bigger sample size with Irving before we make any call on him, but I think at this stage he's a whole lot closer to a bust then he is to an NHL starter.

BTW, a couple of people have mentioned an injury to Irving this year. Can you clarify that for me? I'm unaware of any injury and couldn't find one when I looked for it. Are people confusing Karlssons injury and thinking it was Irving's or am I missing something?
