Should we expect to see him make the World Championship team?
I doubt it. He is with the team now just for experience I think. Enroth has got 5/6 starts since Ersson has been with them.
Elias Pettersson: goalie.
He's starting for Brynäs tomorrow, his first game of the season.
You would have to think, while it's amazing that he did so well last year, and if he does so again, and if Hart pans out (which I think he will), I'm guessing Ersson would be trade bait? Because if both are good, I'm sure you can only keep one. Sorry, just always something like this on my mind when you have a log jam for goalies.
That's a good problem to have and several years away.
If Ersson & Hart hit it gives you flexibility. Think Washington when they had that run there of Varlamov to Neuvirth to Holtby. Not just trade related but it also helps in contracts.
Goalie assets, without NHL track records, are pretty difficult to get solid returns on. If we run into this issue and need to make a trade, we likely will not be thrilled with what we get back.
Definitely looks like a steal
Was great today. Had no chance on 1/2 goals against and made some great saves, including 5 in OT and 2 in the SO to win them the game.
That's similar to Hart's first month in the AHL, slow start, then he gets used to the speed of a higher level league.
Glad i picked up this kid in my keeper league. Him, Husso, and Blackwood. 1-2 of them are bound to be starters one day
The normal pattern is for the backup goalie to spend a couple years starting 25 or so games, then get traded to a team willing to gamble they can start.
So first these kids have to win a backup job before we can worry about a logjam.
I mean, the Caps had it and it all turned out well...
Holtby, Neuvirth, Varmalov, Grubauer.
Nice problem to have if it transpires like that.
Stats arent looking so hot currently.
Brutal. Hope he's okay.
Meh, if it's not career ending, at most it just delays his NA appearance by maybe a year.
With Ustimenko, Sandstrom, Malek, Fedotov and Ross in the pipeline, a blip, not a disaster.
Ersson is behind Ustimenko and Fedotov right now, and Sandstrom may rebound while Malek showed there's still hope.
