I hope CP can prove you wrong on this statement, but you are definitely right on the other.

We will need to wait a few years to see his progression.

Edit:
I got one:

But his best comments about Fucale are in another clip.
Yeah and thats why he fell in the second round..

Never been impressed with this kid..

Love this pick. Favorite pick of the draft. Good for Fucale. Great character, great competitiveness and great hockey sense, exactly what we need.

I didnt want him round 1 but it feels good to take this kid at 36 and have one of the best goalies in the draft, from your hometown team, in the system.

Mark me down as officially being very pleased with this pick.

We are very thin at goalie prospects. Look at what Rask was able to do for an average hockey team. And Crawford was a beast in the nets as well. It takes great goaltending to win a Cup.

Price's future replacement. This gives Price max. two more seasons to prove himself.

Because you think Fucale will be ready in two years? Price is going to finish his contract here, maybe more.

Does that mean Fucale is going to have one of the fastest progression for a goaltender ever?

No pressure bro!

After hearing that interview, how can you not root for the kid (ignoring the fact the he's now one of our prospects) ?

What a great kid!

I was kind of disppointed with the pick because I didn't want us to spend a high pick on a goalie but I'm warming up to it...
