Who's creating higher expectations? I'm just asking him to let in fewer absurdly bad goals, that 100%, should be stopped. I think that's fair to ask of any goalie.

I'm more willing to give Rinne the benefit of the doubt, because he's actually proven he can play at an elite level, for multiple seasons. For a guy getting what might be his only shot? Nope.
