Did anyone think he was a flash in the pan? Did people expect him to be a top goalie in 95? And what was the opinion after 95, when he built on his success from 94?
i would say yes, definite questions about him being a flash in the pan. similar to kiprusoff going into the post-lockout season, or brian elliott right now. at least that was my thinking. after the '95 season, it was like, okay this guy is going to be elite. no one was calling him potentially a historically good goalie yet though.
