How Good Is Jaroslav Halak?

from Sean Gordon of the Globe and Mail,

Respected pundits are now musing that he’d be worth a top-six forward or a first-rounder in a trade (we’ll have what they’re having), and that maybe it’s a smarter move to ship out Carey Price.

Why, we even heard a normally reasoned commentator compare the plucky Slovak, whose agent is reportedly agitating for a move, to Patrick Roy the other night.

Which he surely is - minus the consistency, wins, shutouts, playoff dominance and championships.

This is not to hack on poor, old, hard-done-by, trade-me-right-friggin-now Jaro. Oh, no.

He has played quite well - and occasionally brilliantly - in his current string of four road wins, having been shelled for 1,983 shots over that period (well, given the excitement, it might as well have been that many).
