Saw this in the super market today. Maybe we can help the Canucks and Torts finds this guy. We did trade a future Hall-of-Famer for him.
At this point, the Canucks are setting this guy up for a huge let down. This kid is a super prospect who may actually be higher than Eddie Lack on the Swedish goalie pecking order.
I somewhat understand Torts’ belief that we have to ride Eddie if we want to make the playoffs but that dream realistically died 2 months ago. I also understand Torts’ wants to see if Lack can handle the load of a Number 1. I think it’s safe to say he’s done that. Ultimately, it’ll be someone other than Torts who makes the call come next October as I suspect he’ll be fired at the end of this season.
It’s now time to see what kind of ROI the Canucks received for their former franchise goalie. On the other hand with the way the Canucks have been playing, putting him in now may warrant a visit from Amnesty International.
