There was once a time I cringed and panicked when Jhonas Enroth was between the pipes for the Buffalo Sabres, but that time is no more. Instead now more people, including myself, have become confident about Enroth between the pipes. How confident have I become in Jhonas Enroth? I now believe there is no better time to hand him the reigns of the Buffalo Sabres and send Ryan Miller on his way.
Ever since Ron Rolston rolled into town, he brought a different Enroth to the ice. Instead of a goaltender who couldn’t stop a beach ball,
he’s now a goaltender who can win his team games when they’re badly outplayed and that’s all the Sabres need. It appears as of late that Jhonas Enroth has finally taken the step needed to reach the next level of his young career and is ready to carry a bigger role for the Sabres.
Since his world hockey championship gold medal with team Sweden, Enroth has been on the radar of a lot of people wondering when Miller would be gone. While the season began with Miller between the pipes, it’s looking less likely it will finish that way with the play of Jhonas Enroth this season. Enroth is 1-2-1 on the season with an impressive .932 Save Percentage and 2.22 Goals Against Average and has looked very impressive in his 4 outings.
Due to how impressive Enroth has looked, he’s turned a lot of heads and is starting to earn a reputation in the league and as a result there are a lot of people calling for him to play a larger role with the Sabres. It seems like the Sabres may have found Ryan Miller’s successor and should feel confident in moving on from their former franchise netminder.
Here’s my question to all you Buffalo Sabres fan’s, and maybe it’s just because the Sabres won and we’re all happy, but do you think Jhonas Enroth is ready to become the Buffalo Sabres starting goaltender? He’s certainly looked awfully good as of late and he’s starting to turn doubters into believers.
Place your vote in the poll and sound off in the comments on your thoughts about Jhonas Enroth as of late. Is he ready?
