    Well, I call him The Bross. The only thing close to that was in the 90s and the guys name was the new Boss (selanne). Real deal!

    Anyway if anyone has extra 1st rounders avail and wants to win a Cup, trades inquires are always welcome!

    Glad he's doing well. I liked his Edmonton pads a lot.

    Unfortunately, that's all I liked from him.

    More and more evidence that Edmonton's goalie coach is awful.

    As a side note, he's training with Hellebuyck's miracle working coaches from the last off-season, which partly explains his incredible transformation from his Edmonton days. Teams will figure him out and he will regress, but he should experience a good amount of short-term success.

    I agree.

    The Jets should trade Hellebuyck right now... easily get some nice futures for him.

    A name to remember: Andrew Hammond

    I remember about 10 games where Anders Nilsson (with the Oilers at the time) was looking like the second coming of Ken Dryden... then he turned into Dave Dryden.

    Brian Boucher had 5 shutouts in a row.

    ... and of course who can forget about Scott Foster!

    Yup, the Jets should trade Hellebuyck now!

    Does he still get beat high or did the Jets fix him? Every Oilers goalie coached by Dustin Schwartz gives up the top half of the net.

    Helle was the same but seemed to have been fixed last year. Soft ones this year though .

    Jets fixed a lot of players... The Bross could just be thrown on to the mix. To speed thing up, how many players did the Jets break?

    We have no idea if Brossoit can sustain this level of play due to the small sample size.

    He has been solid as a back up and we are not betting the farm on him.

    We are just happy he is playing well at the moment especially when we got him for nothing.

    That's fair.

    ... and I want to make sure it's known that my comment is not pointing to the Jets or Jet's posters. I think the OP is jumping the gun big-time.

    The guy who played even worse for Nashville, and Montreal’s AHL team than he did in Edmonton. Right...

    Look at his career numbers

    .961
    .873
    .927
    .883
    .939

    He was too inconsistent. He’d look lights out for a while, and then forget how to stop the puck. For the record, I wanted us to keep him, but Chia picking up Montoya meant we were going to be running like 3 backups if we kept LB

    There are a sizable # of Jets fans both on social media and on HF that seem to think Brossoit should be our starter. But so far he's beaten Carolina, Arizona, Detroit x2, St. Louis, New Jersey, Chicago x2 and Vancouver. And lost to Calgary and Buffalo. I'm not sure if this is more he's really solid or he's just getting easy matchups.
    Meanwhile Helle has beaten St Louis x2, LA, Van x2, Florida, New Jersey, Chicago, NYR, NYI, Philly, Edmonton x2 for none playoff teams. He's had some crazy good games against some and some not so good games against others.

    Another hypothesis I have is somehow the Jets seems to limit HDSC when they are less sure of their goalie. Mybe the key for the Jets is to get a new journeyman every year.

    I always thought he looked brutal, even by oilers standards. Good to see he's having success elsewhere

    Small sample size but those numbers are great.

    Wow, 11 games! What could possibly go wrong?

    This goalie happens several times a year, he just changes names. Enjoy it while it lasts.

    Dude has absolutely no business being an NHL goalie coach.
    Blows my mind.

    "Dustin Schwartz joined the Edmonton Oilers as goaltending coach when the team fired Frederic Chabot on Nov. 24, 2014. Schwartz spent the past four seasons as a goaltending consultant with the Western Hockey League’s Edmonton Oil Kings. During his tenure, he helped the Oil Kings collect two WHL Championships as well as a Memorial Cup in 2014.

    The Stettler, Alberta native has also served as a staff member at Vimy Ridge Academy in Edmonton, working as the schools goaltending instructor as well as teaching science. Last year, Schwartz served as the goaltending coach for Team Canada in their gold medal performance at the 2013 Ivan Hlinka tournament."

    Pure nepotism, OBC, red wine summit garbage.

    As for Bross, I've always liked him and hope he continues to play well. Good kid.

    Enh, the guy is definitely serving the Jets well as a backup.

    But as a Jets fan I have to point out that almost every backup has, at some point in time, been declared to have "starter potential" by (at the least) a vocal minority of the Jets HF boards community.

    So I'd take this for what it is worth.

    I mean, the guy is no Kevin McDougal.

    Goalie coaches matter.

    IMO... criminally underrated role.

    He has been the far better goalie. I've always been a believer of "run the hot hand" when it comes to goalies, especially for a playoff team like Jets. I'd have started Brossoit almost twice as often as he actually has been. He'll return to earth at some point I'm sure, but play him until he does. Hellebuyck has been by far the worse goalie this season and Jets have unnecessarily given up tons of games this season.

    Brossoit is 9-1-1, with one of those losses being due to Hellebuyck playing like garbage. Hellebuyck is 19-13-1. If Jets give up home advantage due to Maurice playing Hellebuyck too much, that'll be very unnecessary.
