Almost half of their players wind up in the FHL or the SPHL, the very bottom of professional leagues, one notch above neighborhood pick-up games.

Yogan is bigger, faster, has a better shot and a higher IQ. If he played in college, he'd be easily a first liner right now, way ahead of Foggy.
Could say the same for Talbot who has become a pretty good (not great) AHL starting goaltender. If Hank or Biron went down--he'd probably get some games. He is definitely one of the Whale's most important players and has kept them in numerous games despite the leaky defense in front of him. Yogan may turn into a good pro--potential bottom line NHL player but right now his transitioning into the professional leagues has been going hard.
