What's Kelly Guard potential ? From what I see this guy is AWESOME !!!
Pretty sweet move by the Ottawa management. Guard looked solid backstopping a defensive team. His showing at the Senator rookie camp in Sept. will go a long way in deciding Prusek's time in Ottawa.
There is another post about this already, you might want to try and track it down. As for Guard, my personal opinion is that he's an AHLer or NHL backup. I don't see enough in him to be a starter at the NHL level. I think he'll be one of those guys that dominates at the junior level but isn't able to take that to the next level. I think alot also has to do with the team he was on. Kelowna played a defensive system that limited scoring chances.
There doesn't seem to be anything significant to his game... he's just a good positional goalie on a defensive minded team.
He was only average in the Ducks camp this past season.
