    I think he has the perfect name for a Marvel alter-ego.

    A goalie that is becoming surprisingly better as he plays more in the NHL

    The problem is if it’s sustainable.

    That's the big question. He's obviously found a happy place right now that he's able to perform at his highest level but that said not too long ago i didn't think Kinkaid was anything special, basically your typical backup goaltender.

    His recent play has given me a reason to say he's above average backup but to call him a starter i have to see him play more. It's completely possible Schneider comes in and outplays him this season and they return to norm, just like what happened in the playoffs.

    Calendar year for a goalie can be a small sample size.

    As far as the poll options, to me below average starter/tandem goalie and above average backup is basically the same thing, so the voting so far reflects my thoughts.

    I'd call him a solid 1b, or an "elite backup" if i'm allowed to label him with somewhat of an oxymoron. He's really come on the last few years, and he's proven he can handle a starter workload for some pretty long stretches. But i still wouldn't feel all that comfortable going into a season with him as my clear cut, 60game starter without a really solid tandem guy behind him.

    has good stopping ability. rarely see him flub shots even from the slot. He's ****ing awful side-to-side though. Often caught over-committing and susceptible to 2nd+3rd chances

    A tandem goalie on a contract year. He'll be 30 next summer and this is his only chance of making true bank.

    A good backup.

    I wouldn't want him as my starter.
