And Ramo continues to prove why he is the most over rated prospect in Lightning history...

Well, at least it wasn't lost 27 seconds into OT like last time.

But these last few OT points better not come back to bite them in the tank butt!

Ramo is hardly the worst prospect for sure. Just go back about 10+ years or so. Tyler Moss, Zach Bierk, etc...

Ramo of course isn't the answer right now. But the guy has only played 38 or so games behind an inexperienced defense.

Gobolt7 hates Ramo more than a pitbull hates Mike Vick.

I dont hate Ramo, not at all. But I do think he is over rated. I give him the benefit of a doubt though and believe that with time and a better D he will shine more.

Okay to be technical a second, there are two significant changes to his environment that could be a cause to his problems and require him to adjust.

1. Injury early in the season
2. New goaltending coach

Now, as far as 2, its not that Raedar is a bad coach, far from it, Ramo was just never taught to control his rebounds. Wasn't really necessary for him for many years, now he needs to find that solid balance of using all of his body to trap a puck, which is more difficult than you think.

He has the natural athleticism to be a starting goaltender, and he has the tools, he just needs to find that balance. Goaltenders traditionally take longer to develop than any other position and he is young, i';m okay with it. Lets not forget, we hype Helenius and he is fresh off a bad year with injury problems. Tokarski, as much as I love the kid, is just a pipe dream at this point.

Ramo is NHL ready now as a BACKUP. I wouldn't really call him overrated as some for reasons mentioned above. I'd still like to see a Smith-Ramo tandem next year, with Smith getting 50 to 60 starts.

Not to mention goalies usually dont crack the NHL till there about 27 or 28 and hes only 21/22. Give him time before making statements that make you seem hes a bust already. At the moment, hes a solid Backup which was something we needed to find. I'm happy with it.

Right now, hes not really a solid backup either - but hes just struggling right now.

Smart and true. The defense is absolutely the biggest problem with this team right now. For Ramo to only give up 3 last night considering how the Lightning were dominated in their own end for most of the game, I thought was a big accomplishment. Ramo, to me, is only overrated on this board by some. I think he has tremendous potential and he is just a kid.
