His next two years he wasn't even a very good goalie in the WHL. It happens. Remember what a star Justin Pogge looked like his last year of Juniors?
Injuries aren't the only reason but of all the goalies that busted, poor decisons by the club that drafted them and injuries are common traits found in all of them. That is no coincidence.
