    Korpi deserves his own thread.

    Despite his stats looking pretty bad on paper, he has made some key saves that have changed the complexity of the games he has started in. The team looks like an entirely different team when he has started too. Also, we’re 4-0-0 in his four starts so far this season.. which is what matters most.

    Korpi’s stats thru 4 starts:

    4-0-0.
    3.46 GAA
    .897 save percentage.

    —————————

    Jackets offense with Korpi: 4.75 goals/game.
    Jackets offense with Bob: 3.00 goals/game.

    Jackets defense with Korpi: 3.50 goals against/game.
    Jackets defense with Bob: 4.00 goals against/game.

    Obviously Korpi has a smaller sample size but, interesting.

    I like his game so far. I'll refrain from debating "new top cop" until we get much further into the year.

    He's making timely saves. However, he's also letting in at least one should have had goal per game. He's winning games which is the most important thing, and for that reason he should keep playing, but he has to get better. Although, it's not just on him. I've said it for Bob and I will say it for him, the team defense has been abysmal all season.
