Yeah it was kind of buried in the wasn't the main topic. It just kind of stuck out at me at the time.

EDIT: BTW Meltzer seems to think he will be a cusp starter type goalie....who knows. I just like Bob''s competitiveness and dedication..sometimes that can overcome a lot of perceived shortfalls..

From Bill Meltzer at HockeyBuzz (annoying auto-play ad alert):

There is a shrinking faction of people who believe that Bobrovsky has the potential to be a star goaltender in the NHL. Goaltenders often develop later than position players and Bobrovsky is still just 23 years old (he'll turn 24 during training camp).

… Although I would put Bobrovsky somewhere in the middle of the pack of the young goalies who have already played in the NHL, I don't think his maximum potential is more than a shade higher than average
