Well, the contrast between Honzik and Cape Breton's backup goalie Alex Bureau is pretty stark, and the importance of Honzik to the Screaming Eagles evident, given Honzik's effort in the 2nd game of a back to back against the P.E.I. Rocket today. Honzik stopped an amazing 44 of 46 shots in a 2-1 loss, while Bureau allowed 8 goals on 51 shots in an 8-0 loss yesterday.
Okay, I think I'm a believer in him now and credit goes to DeNiro for helping to change my perspective. Honzik is a workhorse who makes an unreal amount of saves on a regular basis to try to keep his terrible team in games. Needless to say, the Canucks have done very well at drafting and developing goalies in recent history. Maybe they really have something here in David Honzik.
I think that too, watching highlights you can see he makes a ton of huge saves, and is a workhorse as you say.
He is raw but IMO has all the tools to play in this league, he is huge, athletic, and has alot of likeable things, no reason to give up on the guy, just bring him somewhere closer to the organization (in terms of control, not geography) sign him to a deal and we will see if he can crack the Wolves next year, otherwise he could get some time with the K-Wings.
No reason to give up on him though, alot of goalies have come out of nowhere and he seems to have alot of likeable tools.
