I've simply gone against the grain and am pointing out that (this is probably the 3rd thread I've been saying this....) we should not be content with what we have in Leland Irving, that automatically penciling him in as NHL backup, that claiming he's one of the best goalie prospects in the league was all premature IMO.

As for saying the team played like crap, check out Ward's postgame comments. I have never seen a coach so happy with his team after a loss. When a team completly oushoots the opponent, and your goalie gives up bad goals, the loss goes on the goalie. Pretty cut & dry with this one.

Anyways, I stated earlier that I doubt he dresses fow awhile, but I hope Ward gives him a chance to bounce back next game. The longer he sits on this, the less he plays, the more doubt will come into his mind.
Who said he was a top goalie prospect? That seems wrong to me and I like Irving. How is it wrong to say he could be an nhl backup this year when you know he was last year when he stole the job from Karlsson. Why is it so hard for you to admit he had 6 real good games in the nhl and won the backup job last year. Why do you find it so hard to believe he starts as the backup this year and beats Karlsson again?
