Good streak is nice, but let's not go overboard here, still very early and goalies are often the most unpredictable at this age.

At the end of the day it was a 6th round pick, rather them pick their friends kids there than in the top rounds.
Oh, I hear ya. I'm not predicting the Vezina for Skapski just yet, but it is quite an encouraging start.

And to be fair about the "friend's kid" thing, this is also how late round gems sometimes get discovered. It needn't necessarily be a case of pure nepotism; rather, it could be an inside tip along the lines of "Gordie, we got this kid Skapski here. I know his numbers are mediocre, but ever since he abandoned the butterfly, he's been unreal. You gotta come check him out - you'll thank me."

Either way, as I wrote above, I'm mostly just giving you a hard time.
