Anyone remember this guy called LaCosta? Career 1.42 GAA and never lost a NHL game. Alan York? Career 2.3 GAA.

Not saying Bob is these guys, but we've had plenty of goal tenders play great for short periods. Mason has had outstanding stretches in the past. LaClaire, Denis, etc.
Bob does have a 54 game season in PHI where he went .915 & 2.59 before running out of gas in the play offs, so he does a a little more of a read than LaCosta or York.

WhileI also would like to see a little more before anointing him, his recent spurt is encouraging.
