You would have a difficult time finding any Whalers fan at the beginning of last season that was excited about Mahalak being the starting goalie.
Interesting. Well, thanks for the input. I'm very surprised he was so highly sought after with that being the case. Hopefully, he turns his game around as this is likely his last real shot to do so.
