What do backups need to do to be ready. Take tokarski for example , been in the ahl with 4 yrs experience, won Calder cuo, memorial cup, world juniors, tells cup, so he has a little experience with pressure. Has been nothing short of amazing since joining the dogs. How do they get the NHL experience without being given a shot at backup so he practises and gets comfortable at that level. So what should he do to be more ready to try it I'm asking. They can't get the NHL experience unless they work into it through the backup position.
