Nice article, He does sound like a decent prospect to have in the pipeline. I agree with the fact he is slightly hindered with the small frame, but if he can overcome being beaten high, I think he sounds like a decent backup in the making.
he competes and definitely has potential to make it to the NHL one day. I don't think it was a wasted pick at all, and I'm happy we got him in the 6th round. I look forward to seeing how he progresses.
Tokarski was a small goalie, we got in the later rounds. This looks to be more of the same...absolute steal. Now if we could actually develop a goalie that stays with the team it would be good, after drafting some amazing prospects.
Certainly he does not sound like a wasted pick. Some seem to prefer a big fat guy who fills the net to an athletic smaller guy.
I wouldn't necessarily say people prefer "big fat guys" in net, but having size is a definite plus. It's something you can't teach. I'm not saying small goalies have no chance of ever making the NHL, but having size sure makes it a heck of a lot easier.
