I really hope this kid can

I really hope this kid can take it to the next level. I'd really suck if this was just a tease.

For those who are able to watch him play: how does he look? Any obvious issues he needs to work on? Is he stealing these wins, or are they mostly just regular games?

He's the Reason

In every Falcons game I've seen this year he's been outstanding. I think he takes some chances playing the puck that are a little, shall we say, adventurous. However, in terms of his technique, his positioning, his athleticism, he's for real. I don't think this is like Coleman's hot start last year which, to me, was more because of the team in front of him when they still had Craig to go with Milley, Vesce etc. This is all Ramo. He's 8-3-0. I think the other goaltenders are 2-4-0. It's not coincidental.

This is the guy. This will be the first regular NHL starter the Lightning has ever drafted and developed. I believe in him.

Good writeup on last nights game from the Worcester beat writer, a guy who is no homer.
