MAF's future replacement....

We definitely needed to upgrade the goalie pipeline in the system...

TSN had him at 40

"Tristan is a very steady and positionally-strong goalie. He moves well but he maintains a posture and stance in the net that doesn’t open up holes to the shooter. Very smart and reads the play well. Good mobility getting across and out of his net."

Scouting report.

Athletic hybrid goaler with good size and ability, but needs time. Possesses plenty of positive attributes and strengths that projecting going off the board early in round two of the draft, including a good glove, squaring up, hold his ground, and staying calm and collected.

IMO, it is a lack of good forwards.

small sample size and unproven.

Next year will tell the tail as he becomes the starter. Yes, we drafted a back up.

as long as his scouting report didn't include allowing goals in off his own ass, feet, chest, and head it's a positive

It’s going to be so confusing for Bolland in Toronto whenever anyone mentions “that historic collapse in Boston” and he starts smiling.


:lol:

That's a really good trade for Chicago. 51st and 117th + a 4th rounder next year? Bolland is a pretty decent player, but that's a steep price for the guy.

Do Ducks, Wild, Blues, Wings or Sharks need goalie depth. Did we needed to move up?

Well they obviously thought they needed to move up for some reason.
