I watched some of the game tonight, and he looked awesome. Made some highlight-reel saves. Not sure if we had a chance to get him before, though.

Wings could've drafted him in 2008 but instead drafted Thomas McCollum.

He seems to be in the HAsek school, just flopping around but making great saves.

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting players and  follows it up by the simultaneous undressing of the defence pairing.  The end result is a calm skate back to his bench  where he can bask in the praise of his multiple girlfriends from the motherland.

Disgusting...

And yet... I still think I'd prefer him as a prospect right now over McCollum.

McCollum in my opinion has been one of the worst Ken Holland moves in a VERY long time.

Drafts are mostly Jimmy Nill, Joe McDonnell and Hakan Andersson. Word on the street is that Hakan of course wanted Markstrom.
