2-Potential based on his age
He has great potential and can potentially become the best of the best. But it's just that potential, and it has yet to be realized.
3-His current level this season
He hasn't been that good this season. Amongst goalie who have played 10 games, he's 16th in S%, 9th in GAA (despite the fact we're 4th in SA). He's first in wins, but fairly sure he's not top 5 in win%.
So he's not one of the best for past accomplishments and current play. He's only one of the best, if not the best, based on potential. I can accept that. But let's stop pretending he is elite right now because he is not.
Whew... good thing he had a horrible game tonight right? Because coming into this game he had Vezina type numbers and was probably the front runner for the award.
