Yeah... no. The only time he posted Sv% above .900 was in a 12 game sample size in 11-12. He was bad in the OHL. Like really bad. He has been no better in the AHL, posting .905 Sv% this season. And it's not like I didn't watch him in the OHL... he looked completely lost. Not a great defense but he was letting in soft goals regularly. Very inconsistent game-to-game.

In the AHL, he split time with Cristopher Nilstorp (an atrocious goalie) and then lost his job going into playoffs. During the regular season he allowed 13 goals in 4 games against the Wolves and looked completely out of place at that level. Zero concentration, zero ability to bounce back. Last game against the Wolves he got chased a few minutes into the 2nd period.

Do you have him confused with somebody else?

My Flyers fan buddy used to go on and on about this guy. He was crushed when Philly lost him. So I'm happy

However, with CHL and European goalies, you only have two years (i.e. when they're 20 and likely still 4-5 years from making any impact).
There's an acknowledged problem with development of Canadian goalies but as far as drafting goalies that will be attending college rather than the CHL, I'm not sure that it's a safer bet. Fact is how many drafted goalies that teams are not willing to give a contract to 2 years after being drafted become #1 goalies? Ya goalies take longer to develop and there are late bloomers, but I don't think the extra year or two to evaluate really does anything to change a team's mind more often than not.

Most of the time, two years after being drafted, a team either thinks there's something there or they don't. We've known about Cannata and Schneider and were high on them before they entered their 3rd year of college. You rarely have guys who fail to develop for two years in juniors or college and then suddenly surprise.

How is Cannata planning on winning all those Vezinas with Eriksson running him out of town?

That's what I was getting at. With a guy like J.J. Daigneault - despite him not turning out to be a great pick (expectations from being a top ten pick), he did end up with a long servicable NHL career. There isn't anywhere nearly the leeway with a goalie prospect. The "boom or bust" is even more clearly evident with goalie prospects.

I'd argue there's a big difference between putting up great numbers in the SEL at the age of 21 like Eriksson did and at 27 like Nilstorp did.

Here's an article on the development of Jack Campbell. AHL stats don't mean much. He's been pretty good anyway.
Well, I'm glad that 'stats don't mean much' yet you link me to an article where the sole argument to back up Campbell's progression are his stats in February. You know how he finished the season after that one good month? .894Sv%, ~2.8GAA, 6W, 6L. And he lost his job for the playoffs as a result.

This kind of 'analysis' is how Steve Mason managed to stay in the NHL for so long despite only ever having one great NHL month and then the rest of his career being at or below replacement level.

Wait are you telling me that the way Mason ended last year with the Flyers isn't a sign that he turned it around for good?

Seems similar to the Eddie Lack signing, I've got nothing to complain about here

I don't care about AHL stats for a 21 year old goaltender known for his athletic ability. It's just ridiculous. Means nothing, especially when you yourself pointed out "sample sizes" in your earlier post. Now that a sample size suits you, it works?

I'm not going to belabour this point, go argue on the Stars board about him if you like. They'll shut you down quickly. He's 21 years old with 52 AHL games under his belt TOTAL, bookmark, remember this, whatever you need to do. By the time the kid is 25 he's going to be a very good goalie. You couldn't have been more wrong about it. That's OK.
Look at his OHL numbers. Bad there too.

Lost his spot on Kitchener and traded to the Soo where he was largely crap.

John Gibson passed him and isn't looking back for the Americans.

Believe your still focussed on draft position and not actual talent.

guys, i dont care that he does a bad job at his job. what i can tell is, hes got heart. A big ol' heart. its real big and he cares a lot. i can tell from this hes gonna be good. dont tell me every time he tries to be a goalie he does a bad job at being a goalie, that's not useful right now. whats useful is, all the things you want to be a good goalie, he has, like arms, legs, a working torso and a heart to pump them blood. i know right now those are getting in the way of each other, but imagine when he uses them to get in the way of the puck? hes gonna be good one day, as long as he learns to use them with, and not against each other

Forget the stats with this kid. That's not his strong suit right now. He's not where a normal 21 year old goaltender would be at this stage, because of his lack of regular playing time at every level. It's just a different path, doesn't mean he's a poor goalie or a bust.

The Stars are happy with him. Read some articles, go see what their fans are saying. He's not going to develop traditionally and this is a big season for him. But he should be in no way, shape or form written off because of his numbers at this point. He needs to mature a lot still. They consider him a big part of their future and rightfully so.

He's big, quick and athletic. He's got all the tools and barring injury is still on pace to becoming a quality NHL starter. There are more than one way to do it. Look around the league. Not every goalie was tearing up the NHL at 21. Patience is needed with this kid and that's what he'll get from the Stars.
Lack of playing time? The guy has played 161 games in the last 3 years and it would've been even more if he hadn't lost his job in this year's playoffs.

And if you're comfortable projecting massive strides in a 21 year old's game by the time he's 25, I have no idea why you're equating Eriksson's numbers from 21 and 22 to Nilstorp's numbers from 26 and 27.

There are always late bloomers and no one's writing Campbell off, but if you think this is the kind of progress you'd hope for from a near top 10 draft pick you're crazy.

What will I learn from a bunch of posters who don't even watch their own AHL team? I read their boards after we traded Connauton. Updates consisted of posting his stat line rather than reports. I've seen Campbell play all 4 games against the Wolves this season. I had also seen him play about 15 times at the OHL level over the course of the two seasons. I'm sure you have too, given your strong opinion that goes contrary to his stats at every level.

It doesn't matter how well he does, as long as he's big and athletic right?

Good signing by MG.With Luongo certain to be gone one way or another by next season and Lack's questionable status after surgery,we really need some depth in goal behind Schnieder besides Cannata and signing Honzik was'nt the answer.
I don't see Eriksson being Cory's backup,though,as he'll need time to adjust to the North American game and getting quality playing time in the AHL would be the best place for that.I think Lack is further along in his development despite missing most of last season so hopefully the missing time and surgery does'nt derail his progress and he can make the jump to the NHL next year.

I wonder who's going to be our backup. There's a very good chance either Cannata or Eriksson beats out Lack.

? Cannata beating out Lack? Maybe if his hip has been literally destroyed and his career is over. No chance if he's healthy and recovered.
