He still played as a back up though. Can he play 5 straight games more than 6 times in a season? He played the same amount of games as Blackburn, and Blackburn tied an NHL record for 5 straight wins by a teen goalie. The only difference between Blackburn and Turco is the statistical numbers. Obviously Blackburn had a pathetic defense in front of him, yet he played extremely well in many games.
I like Turco, he has an awesome mask, a great attitude that will improve the locker room’s atmosphere, and he has good skills. All he has to do is just prove to me that he can play 55 games as a starter.
