I did see the highlight goal where he couldn't stretch to cover the post... that's his injuries and conditioning talking, but the rest may not have been all him?
Considering him as a backup goalie he was better than I expected, meaning not bad at all. If he can stay in the net and stay square, not go down on the ice (he has major problems getting back up), with adequate help from his defense clearing the crease, he could function in that role. Not a starter or a goalie you would want to carry the team. He has so many techical and emotional flaws, but most backups do.
I am not a fan of DP so I hope I gave him a fair assessment...a B- for the game.
