I'm not remotely sold on Gustafsson.

The backup on his team has almost identical stats.

Gustafsson:
2011/12 GP: 29 GAA: 1.68 Sv: .932
2012/13 GP: 29 GAA: 1.66 Sv: .933

David Rautio:
2011/12 GP: 27 GAA: 1.72 Sv: .929
2012/13 GP: 19 GAA: 1.60 Sv: .930


That usually points to a system that works vs elite talent. The only thing that stands out remotely is that he's got more starts this year, so his coach presumably trusts him more.

I'd love to be wrong, but until I see him in North America, I'm not going to anoint him anything other than worthy of a look in Houston.
