So one bad game and he send him down?
I understand some expect him to be Kipper 2.0 but that is ridiculous he played fine for a young net minder thrown into the starting role.
Detroit - Played good but only faced 6 shots in 1 period and didn't have to face a powerplay.
Columbus - Played good but you would expect him to when facing worst team in NHL.
Vancouver - Played well until floodgates opened in 2nd period and defence failed terribly.
Minnestoa - Best game he played I thought.
Dallas - Played a decent game but agreed with bad goal and shaky puck control.
St. Louis - Horrible opening 4 minutes. 2 goals on 4 shots before getting yanked.
I understand everyone wants to give Irving more opportunities but he wasn't even good enough to be the backup for the Heat but expect him to be a starter now in the NHL? What is wrong with giving either Brust or Taylor a go? I know that stats in the AHL don't always translate to the NHL but they've been brick walls down there and are numbers 1 and 2 with below 1.90 GAA.
