However, as teams in the NHL get back up to speed I think he's going to take hits to his stats. I'm not sure how "good" this CBJ team will actually be. They have little offense and if you can't hold the puck you're going to play in your own zone a LOT.
I like the acquisition and hope he pushes Mason to give us a punchers chance on any night.
I mentioned it before. He didn't look very good when he just came to the KHL. Different angles require different positioning. Rinne had same problems. All of Bob's 4 shutouts happend in his last 8 games.
