FWIW, Knights fans also said the same thing about Bobkov.
I was shocked to see Plymouth get two 3rd round picks for Mahalak. I figured anything more than a bag of pucks would have been a good deal.
After watching him for three years -- including part of last year as a starter -- I would not feel comfortable at all with him in net. Matt always looks like he's fighting the puck, gives up way too many weak goals, gets himself out of position too often, is very poor at controlling rebounds, and is weak handling the puck. Other than that, he is okay.
We saw an immediate change in the Whalers team confidence when he was replaced by Nedeljkovic as the starter last season. There is a reason the Hurricanes did not offer him an ELC.
