Yeah i take back what I said about "every goal". The first one was a comedy of errors. Off Garrison and in. Still not as funny as that one early in the year that Hamhuis, Luongo, and Garrison combined on. That was a beauty!
Depsite all of my negative posts on Lack, I really do like the kid and see a ton of potential there. He has basically had the weight of a city put on his shoulders since the Luongo deal. It's unfair, really.
My problem with him is it seems like he constantly gets beat high, more often than not from a longer distance. He is very good down low in close... Possibly better than Lou in terms of lateral movement and staying composed. I hav just seen a change since the beginning of the year. He doesn't come out and challenge as much on the long shots and pucks are going in over his shoulders. I think he's like 6'3" or something? Pucks shouldn't be getting over his shoulders.
I also believe the scouting report is to shoot high glove on him. If you look at total shots on net and missed shots on net I think the strong majority would be aimed at that area.
He has a long way to go but there is a ton of potential. I just hope we don't ruin him in the process. It takes a special kind of goaltender to play in a Canadian market. Especially in Vancouver. You must have particularily thick skin...cause assholes like me will pick your ass apart!
