Scouting Report
Assets: Is extremely tough to get a read on from a shooter's perspective because he's unpredictable. Plays a very active, unorthodox style. Can get red-hot for long stretches and has a lightning-fast catching hand. Often makes highlight-reel stops.
Flaws: Tends to struggle with his lateral mobility. When he's cold, he also loses his focus--that's a double-whammy. Also doesn't always show great consistency, specifically in those two critical areas. He's also showing signs of decline with age.
Career Potential: Quality, unorthodox veteran goaltender in decline.
