I hope we can put to rest the questions about his ability and try to cheer him on.  Yes it's still early but I believe it's different than in the past.

Some people are so temperamental, the nature of a goalie's save percentage is that they rarely play at the same level, it's a mixture of peaks and valleys.

There are only a few Henny Pennys around these parts. The rest of us have been chillin' with Foxy Loxy.

Steady Freddy quietly assembling a body of work.

Let us immortalize this great moment when Hunwick tried to go 5-hole on Freddie, but got shut down with a leg sweep.

Good to see Freddy get into a groove.  I admittedly didn't know anything about him since he played out in Anaheim and very rarely got to see him play, looks like the Leafs made a good choice.  Hope his play keeps up.

If the deal to bring Andersen to the Leafs is Lou's biggest contribution as Leaf GM when he retires in a year or two and highlights his legacy as Leafs GM, it may have been worth his hiring alone. Of course that all depends on how well Freddie does long term in Toronto. But right now, Lou (and whoever else was involved in that deal) are looking like a geniuses.

As Hunwick can't score on the opposition it looks like he was trying one on the home side. Almost a home goal there Matty!

It's early still.  Andersen wasn't as bad as he looked in the first couple of weeks and he's probably not as good as he currently is playing.  I hope I'm wrong and he continues to play great, but I suspect he'll be somewhere in the middle of the two extremes.

Normally I'd agree with that line of thinking, but there were pretty good reasons why he played poorly to start the season. He came to camp injured and didn't have a full camp. He was starting with a new team and new coach with new systems in front of him. Sure he may be playing above the bar a little now , but I think it's much closer to what he'll be than what the start of the season would indicate.
