So you've gone from saying he needs more time to develop in the AHL to him being our bonafide starter next year...?

Unless he just absolutely steals the show this season, I'd say it makes more sense to pair him with another goalie (maybe re-sign Theo) in a 1a/1b situation.

I'm a big proponent of having him in the NHL, but unless proven otherwise, I feel it would be best to ease him in and not thrust a 65 game season on him right away.
