Slow down a bit here. Petr has barely dealt with any pro adversity yet, which is a huge part of the learning curve. It's not like he's a top goalie in the AHL already, even if he's had a massively impressive rookie campaign. Even first rounders and top goalie prospects like Rask and Schneider played 2-3 seasons in the minors. Lehner and Markstrom are in their 3rd year right now. It's great that he got a surprise game already this season, but it's more of a bonus. A couple of weeks training with Jimmy and get the odd start is fine for now, but after that he needs to play games on a regular basis. You simply don't skip development steps or overexpose goaltenders early in this day and age.
