The Good: Läck is a big goaltender who uses his size to his advantage looking through traffic to see the puck, and aggressively challenging shooters. Despite his size he has good lateral movement, covers the bottom of the net well, has good balance, and is positionally sound.The key to his overall in-game success as a rookie was his excellent positioning. His ability to square up to AHL shooter by arriving on his angles with precision and balance, especially at such a consistent level, was exceptional. He is an even-keeled and “quiet” guy in the crease, so he was tough to knock off his game or catch out of position. In the games I watched him play last season, he always seemed to get his big body behind pucks and soak up rebounds. He has incredible size for the goaltending position, and tremendous agility for a big goalie. Lack displays a calm demeanor that assures confidence with his teammates.
The Bad: Lack is still somewhat raw, as he didn’t have much structure to his positioning or intangibles. He also needs to improve his foot speed if he wants to play in the NHL. It’s hard to see him getting that chance in Vancouver, but he has great size on his side and he’s still young. He still needs to prove his mettle at the highest level, against the best shooters in the world, over an extended period of time.
