Maybe. But I still think he's a bad goalie. He's a Éric Fichaud clone.
that is a really harsh assessment.
Sanford is a quick and agile goalie with a strong glove hand. His problem is his height... he can be exposed up high. I'm not saying he's a number one because he hasnt been able to put a string of good games together, but he's effective in spot duty when he's not injuring his groin.
Fichaud was just bad in every way... every shot was a challenge for him
For a 3rd string goalie and an occasional number 2, he does pretty well.
If you ask me, he's fantastic in that role. He would do pretty well as a backup and would be poor as a #1. While Halak is better than he is, I have a feeling that Halak will not finish his season in Montreal, and that Sandford will be our #2.
