Bob is a 6'2 goalie that plays like he is 5'10".

He will have lights out stretches during the season because ha has sick athletic skills but when teams game plan for him I think he will just be a good goalie.

Either way, he wasn't going to have success here and Bryz looked like the answer to the goalie issues when he was signed.
As long as Bob has his sick athleticism to now match his "easily fixed" technical skills that has him playing larger and less crouched, he will be above average at the least and I don't see him being exploited as you say in a long series. NOW...if he suffers injuries like Nitty and Esche (limiting his athleticism)..then yeah he could very well become average in the Theodore mold. That is my take..
