It's also not out of the realm of possibility that he'll have his struggles in his second year. Its difficult to live up to expectations. He had none last season and now he has a pretty high standard to live up too.
True. It's equally bold to claim that he'll suck. There's no "right" answer... but I think it's quite unfair to flat out assume he'll sophmore slump into nothingness.

lol please. that's putting words in my mouth. I also don't understand what your complaint is here.
i said i think he'll be challenging miller and lundqvist for top goalie honors. i don't claim that he'll undoubtedly be top 3 in the NHL, let alone best in the NHL. i think he'll be in the fight tho.
Pierre McGuire was just on off OTR when asked about will it ever work out for Hodgson in Vancouver he said, "yes"... that form the same guy who on July 1st freaked out over the Malhotra signing and saying Van has no spot for him haha. Ohhh Pierre.
He just said he thinks Rask will be the best goalie in the NHL next year!!!.
If you watched him last year, it's hard to say he wasn't top 5 for sure..

Look buddy CoHo was the OHL pizza eating player of the year so don't sit there and deny his credentials, not to mention that stuffed crust pizza he downed at the world juniors.. Geez I'm so tired of people judging him like he can't man up and start eating full meals. We just need to be patient watch him nibble some baby food before we can finally make a proper assessment. If all goes well he will be sitting beside Malhotra plowing down open faced roast beef sandwiches.
