I'd love to see him in Chicago w/ Tretiak back as coach. That just leaves the question of whether Pittsburgh wants to launch him or not.
If MAF wasn't the 1st overall pick of his draft, no one would argue that he's anything more than an average NHL starter. He has outstanding athletic ability, but when it comes to stopping the puck, the proof is in the pudding.. or, the back of the net, in this case.
