i posted these in the previous prospect thread but i'll re-post them here to reinforce the point:

follow up on Sunshine

here are his numbers again for the past two season in the SEL
2011-12 33GP 1.73GAA .935SV%
2012-13 22GP 1.73GAA .931SV% (season not over yet)

here are Lundqvist's numbers from his last 2 yr in the SEL (as a 21-23yo which just so happens to be Sunshines age in the seasons listed above) before making the jump to the NHL.
200304 48 GP 2.17GAA .927SV%
200405 44GP 1.79GAA .936SV%

i'm not saying he's anywhere near Lundqvist's level or that he could potentially be even but as of right now Sunshine is a top 3 goalie i would say in the SEL as a 22yo. i'm just saying that i think he could be a very capable goalie in this league (surely better then most of our current prospects).

btw he's now eligible to be signed as a free-agent
