Scouting Report
The perpetually underrated goaltender (he ranks in the top 30 on the all-time shutouts list) still reads plays well, even as a backup in his late 30s. Is small by today's NHL goaltending standards, but is quick on his skates and can still carry a team for brief stretches. Injuries have always been a problem, and he is no longer capable of carrying the mail.
Long Range Potential: Underrated veteran goaltender in decline.
