Read the rest of my post - a career ceiling of a 1B goalie isn't exactly superstar material. I never thought he was a great pick to begin with (esp. considering the better goalies had already been taken), and any praise I send his way is mostly due to my own surprise.

I think part of the problem is the revolving door of prospect/backups over the years (McHardtospelly, Phil the Sieve) and Irving has had better results than those folks.
