Mostly because he was scared.

Flop...complete, utter, total flop.

I think we finally gave up on Soderburg and traded him for someone elses problem child goaltender.
How could you have forgotten Hannu "Nanu Nanu" Toivonen?

Reeves with the 89 goals...skating was not his forte.
True, but he was not slow enough to explain the complete lack of transition to a higher level. Plus...early 90's...he could have gotten away with the lack of speed in a few years.
It was as if coming to the IHL and not dominating totally destroyed him.
