Given how some of the goalies have done so far that have come over to NA after playing over seas last few years I have pretty high hope from Ramo.
Yeah, just take a look at a guy like Viktor Fasth who had less impressive stats in an inferior, very defensive league and played his way into a 2 year extension in under 10 games with ANA. It's not far fetched that Ramo can come in and be a starter sooner rather than later. I just hope he can be committed to the NHL and more importantly the Flames.
