    Can't wait for his NHL debut when he gets an 8 spot dropped on him by the Devils or something.

    Hopefully not, but no one is sure how he'll translate to the NHL, yet. I'm thinking it'll take some seasoning, but he looks extremely promising, ATM.

    The greatest part? If you can get Lundqvist-like production on a ELC...

    Worst start of the season so far statistically. Sometimes its hard for a goalie when they have a game where they hardly face any shots.

    Its one game, and I think its unrealistic to expect him to have such great concentration that he can post shutouts so regularly. Putting up good SV%'s on a consistent basis is what I'd like to see.

    An interesting x factor for this goalie prospect is we don't know based on his KHL workload what his stamina is. He could be a Brodeur 74 game goalie or Tim Thomas who needed a nap every third game to stay successful.

    Reps for goalies matter in today's NHL, especially when starters begin to get 100% starts in the playoffs.

    Took me a minute to understand what he was talking about. I guess he meant worst GAME of the season for him but he worded it terribly.

    What @The Crypto Guy said.

    That's definitely what he meant to say.

    One of the challenges is that Shesterkin has set the bar so incredibly high with his numbers, that at some point they're going to be impossible to top.

    I'm not particularly worried about him being on a loaded team. His experiences outside of those settings has been solid, and the truth is that what he's done is about as close to the pinnacle of what you can do outside of the NHL.

    He's a prospect, so there's always the element of the unknown, but he's done about all anyone can ask.

    I thought that was the case going into this season from last year when his numbers were pristine in their own right.

    This year's SKA is not as far apart from the rest of the KHL as was the case last year but somehow Shesterkin was able to raise his standard yet again.

    As I saw a couple of proposals that included Shesterkin, I agree with the position that as a project he is worth more to the Rangers organization to whatever value he would bring in a trade.

    Shesterkin is in the net today for a big KHL (West - East) game SKA vs Salavat Ulaev.

    Igor lost 2-1. Gave up a PP goal with 30 seconds left in the game. Stopped 19 of 21.

    For context he made the initial save and it took a fluke bounce off of the forehead of the player in the paint and went in to hand Shesty his first loss. Just an absolute trash accidental goal, so not at all his fault

    Did that puck go off the skate, initially? Either way, there's absolutely no reason to kick your skate out like that.

    What a softie, he can fill Lundqvist's shoes right away with that kind of performance.

    Too close to tell. Almost looks like it grazes Zub's skate. Didn't look like it changed trajectory.

    Game in about an hour. They haven't posted lineups.

    Tretiak's kid is the backup for the other team.
