    What's the down low on this kid? I really liked him in his draft year but he seems to have slid a bit in his performance and future potential.

    Where does he stand right now? Is he the legit go-to guy in Saint John?

    I believe so, if he can carry the team to the promise land ala Desserres then he should be drafted.

    He's already drafted and Columbus owns his rights until June 2012.

    I'm well aware, although I believe this response was simply meant for the guy above you.

    His confidence was absolutely shot playing in Halifax. Saw a lot of rubber and saw a lot of it go past him. Tough for a young kid to be between the pipes for such a difficult span of time.

    Usual course of events in Halifax would see him start strongly, for maybe half of the first period, then let in a goal (maybe his fault, maybe defensive breakdown), then you could just watch him deflate. He'd play deeper in his net, he'd be visibly frustrated and the goals would just continue to pile up.

    Question remains on whether he can turn it around in Saint John. Worth noting that this is the first winning team he's ever been a part of. Ever. Going back to when he first started playing.

    Still has that great size, still moves well, needs to continue to refine his technique, but the biggest questions are the mental side of the game. This will be a very important season for him.

    Holy **** !!!!!!! I can't imagine what that's like to be on losing teams your whole life, and to stick with it, wow, I think that speaks alot about his personality.

    From what I saw in camp, his posture kind of bothers me. Maybe that's because he's growing into a tall frame, but he always seemed hunched over in the crease. And Forbes isn't joking about the winning team thing. Jackets management are hoping that he's simply a case of a good goaltender on a poor team.
