2009-10: #8 seed (played 4 games, was not the starter)

It's easier to just post his record as proof that he's not a "big time" goalie. I can get being disappointed with his career performance in the regular season, but I don't know how one can reasonably be upset with how he's been in the playoffs. He was very good against Boston and we lost 3 games in OT and the final goal was a flukey bounce off of Halpern's skate. The year before was all Halak, and the year before that was the most hopeless playoff series we've ever been a part of. His first playoff series wasn't spectacular, but was far better than most rookie goalies at the age of 21 could have done.
As you said, this year is pretty important. Team isn't as much of an excuse (although the D is looking paper thin lately) this year, so we'll see how he can respond to the pressures.
