You could argue he was the best goalie in the league through the first half. He was also a top five goalie his rookie year. He has had one bad year (sophomore slump) and people say he's inconsistent and just average. Almost every goalie in the league did worse their second full year. I'm not claiming he's elite, but saying he's an average starter is not giving him nearly enough credit. He was the biggest reason we made the playoffs three years ago and you could argue he was just as important as Datsyuk, widely accepted as a top five player in the game, last year.
