The Good: Enroth has proved in his limited NHL experience that he can be a legitimate NHL goalie, with 17 wins and 10 losses in 35 games. He is extremely quick and agile and has outstanding reflexes and solid instincts for the goaltending position. Enroth has good anticipation and performs well under pressure and will get you wins on a weak team. Although Buffalo has Ryan Miller signed for the next three seasons, Enroth has carved a role for himself as a back-up to Miller, unless he gets traded.  Enroth is very consistent, and has shown the ability to carry his team in big games, and can steal games for your team.  He shows very good quickness, agility, and an excellent glove-side.

The Bad: Enroth won’t be a starter with Ryan Miller in front of him in Buffalo. He lacks the ideal size of an NHL goaltender, and nobody knows whether he can can carry the load for any team for an entire season, but there is not doubting his skill and the ability to win. He needs to improve his stamina if he is to ever play for long stretches.
