It's not that we're not willing to give him a chance. If Miller is traded, most of us are perfectly willing to give him a chance.

There's just a bunch of us that doubt that he can handle a true starter's load. And it's not an unfounded doubt. At all.


We've seen how good AND how bad he can be.
Yes, I know his 5-hole is pretty bad. I hear over and over on how small the guy is. Just because he's smaller compared to the other goalies in the league doesn't mean he wouldn't be a dependable starter. That's basically what you guys are saying in this thread.

I'm willing to give the dude a chance and I see his potential. He seems to really care about this team and wants to succeed.

Enroth's bad was about average for a backup. Losses aren't solely on a goaltender.

It means a little. In the great scheme of things though, it's a very small sample size. Like many others, I'm willing to see what he will do with a chance to start more often. I have my doubts, but am more than willing to be proven wrong.

So starting once in a blue moon over a few years means more than the only time he got regular starts? Got it. /smh

Not sure if this was directed at me. However, Enroth has not had enough starts at the NHL level to determine how he is going to pan out. He's been good at times, and bad at others.

Most folk, including me, are willing to give him a try.

More games played than Bishop, Markstrom, Fasth, Lehner. Four fewer than Holtby, five fewer than Bernier. It's a little conservative to say that's a poor sample size to start drawing conclusions from unless you think the jury's out on those other players as well.

Can he be a No. 1 starter? That question is still difficult to answer because there simply isn't enough information to say definitively he'd make an above average No. 1. There is no position harder to project than goaltender – and by a mile.

That being said, his statistics and performance in 2013 say he has a good chance at being capable – even very good.
