Sure he did. I didn't say I think he is going to fail or anything like that, but I'm not ready to call him a perennial Vezina contender or anything based on a win in the shortened season. He also played pretty poorly in his second season, which granted was 9 games fewer than he played this year. Again, I am not saying he is going to flop, I just want to see if he can repeat them (or at least put up comparable numbers)

I don't think that sort of consistency on two different teams is an accident.
And that's fine. We'll see what happens next year. You are probably right. I'm just curious to see what he can do in a full year now. Good rookie season. Bad sophomore season. Great third season. We'll see how #4 goes.
