It's only a couple games - behind the hottest team in the league ATM. Sure he got peppered but I would still like to see a number of games more before I anoint him "the next one."

it's the same reason i'm not sold on Harding as a starter. Or not 100% confident in a "all your eggs" kind of way. He looks good when he's in for the most part, but over a season carrying 60 games or more...Rather have Hackett apprentice under Backstrom and adjust the amount of games according to how he looks than trust Harding can maintain solid play over that kind of span and/or stay healthy.

To be honest, I think I would trust Harding to be more consistent than Backs, but the guy just has the absolute worst luck as far as injuries. Cant fault him at all for this one at least, so thats something.

I kinda hope we start Hackett again tomorrow against Phoeeney.
