So far he has been solid, but ...
How can we know if he's going to be Lalime 2.0? He hasn't played any big games yet. Columbus was never in the playoffs while he was there and he sure hasn't played any big games in Ottawa yet.
I'll reserve judgment until I see him play a game seven against the Leafs in Toronto before I compare him to Lalime
We also have to wait and see if he makes it through the season before judging if he is just a solid addition to the IR squad.
