Is this a legitamite concern, or am I worrying about nothing here?
well, I've never played goalie nor am I an goalie expert but IMO playing competive hockey in Europe is better than training in NA, and for sure better than training in Europe, as Jaro did before

so I don't think it will be that much of a concern, especially with Elliott as back-up and with all the other goalies playing there aswell

i'm just glad he's back at 100%, should the NHL start...
