Writing him off b/c in the second half of his rookie year he faltered somewhat and then judging him harshly in a year where he had to adjust to being a backup which is not easy for a self-motivated player like him borders on complete irrationality...
I think penciling him in as a franchise goalie after one good season is also bordering on complete irrationality.
