Shhhh, not on here!
The guy has twice this preseason, given up a goal on the first shot he faced, and he's notorious for that.
Also in the team scrimmage he let in 3 goal on the first 3 shots. (two of the goal scorers were Adams and Glass)
It's hard to believe he's turned the corner, figured it out, whatever you want to call it. He no longer gets the benefit of the doubt, he has to start showing up in whatever situation he's in. Practice, scrimmage, pre season, regular season, etc.
I'm willing to see what he'll do this season before I write him off completely, but I'm hardly optimistic with the start he's had. However, it could mean absolutely nothing and he could come out with our regular D in front of him and be a completely competent goaltender. Judging by Shero's comments, I could see him putting him on a short leash and finding some kind of fix if he fails again.
