The Good: The guy is huge. He has a 6 foot 4 frame, and knows how to use it. He has been given the nickname “the monster” for good reason. He has a strict butterfly style, and rarely ventures away from it. He doesn’t get caught out of position very often, but when he does, he scrambles well. He has a knack for always knowing where the puck is, even on tips, and in fast-paced scenarios. His butterfly style allows him to cover the bottom half of the net very easily. His legs are so long, and take up so much net, shooters shouldn’t even try to score down low on the guy. What if they try to shoot high? He has solid reflexes to fall back on. Reflexes + Size is always a good combo. He is very good at reading plays. I’ve seen him get out of some very tough situations, because he knew exactly what the other player was going to do. He definitely likes to stay back in his net, more so than most butterfly goaltenders.

The Bad: He doesn’t look exceptionally strong when pushing across. Sure, he’s big and flexible which helps him get by, but his lateral movement could really use some work. When James Reimer is hot, no matter how Gusty plays it seems like Coach Ron Wilson will lean towards Reimer over the Monster. He has been known to have heart problems in the past, and he must improve his stamina to be a starter in the NHL.
