He seems to be taking the steps he needs to take and correcting the flaws that needed correcting.
Nothing he's shown in 3 years indicates that he will suddenly explode and go full Mason/Boucher
Is that what we are talking about? I thought we were talking about the decision to go with Bryz at the time of the decision, without hindsight, when he had played in 60 NHL games. Two years later when he has a Vezina nomination under his belt no one is thinking that he is going to flop. But two years ago when had only played in 60 games, it was certainly a possibility. Nevermind, you win. You are right. He showed amazing potential. He was destined to be a franchise goalie. Bryz was a terrible decision then and now and the entire situation is indefensible. Always better to wait for a no name guy to develop than to go with the established guy.
