Aside from a brutal 1st period against SJ and a mediocre game against Calgary (neither being completely his fault), he has been fantastic. Too early to tell if he is the goalie of the future for the Oilers, but I think it definitely looks like he COULD be.

One thing I know for sure; without him standing on his head most nights, the Oilers likely only have 2 wins at the moment instead of 4. The Oilers have been getting badly outplayed in the 3rd period of most games, and he has been the one preserving the leads or at least keeping it close. It's about time the team came out and gave him an easier 3rd period where he doesn't face like 20 shots. A goalie can definitely win you a game, but he shouldn't have to bail the team out EVERY night.
