I don't think anyone is convinced that he is, maybe a couple posters. Far more people are convinced he's not, but generally we feel that the hell with it, we're gonna suck anyhow so roll with the guy, Hackett, and Leggio to see what's what. Maybe we'll get Ekblad (ha! more like 9th overall).

The bottom line is that even if he can be starter quality, he won't have a good chance to show it unless our team defense improves dramatically. If he does, then he has the talent to put in a decent showing. He needs to work on his focus and confidence, which is obviously what separates goalies at this level from being starters to back-ups to out of the league.

Even if he is nominally the starter, I can't see him getting a heavy workload. They'll be spreading the opportunities around.
