Sorokin should get 25-30 games . It's Varlamov's net 20-21 till Sorokin proves he is ready. If all goes well he will be our starter for 21-22 season.

They have pretty much gone 55-45 percent with their goalies if they squeeze 82 games in they will need Sorokin to take more games.

Comparing Dobson to Sorokin is totally wrong in many ways Ben. Just my opinion of course. Dobson 20, Sorokin is 25 and has played many higher level games than Dobson.

Based on what he’s done in the KHL and what the Trotz system will offer him, he will be, or at least should be, more than fine.

Agreed. Sorokin is older and much more experienced . Dobson was 20 in his rookie year. That's a big difference in experience. I have zero concerns about Sorokin. With our defensive structure, he'll be among the league leaders in save pct.

I dont see him getting 35 games unless Varly goes down to injury.

I also want to thank @NHLBlackhawks @NYIslanders organizations and teammates there that helped me to this point. Especially fans in Long Island that truly changed my life and gave me the push I needed.

Yup. Wish the Islanders could’ve kept him, but it just wasn’t a fit long term.

He’s not a 19 year old kid. He’s ready. It’ll be his net by the end of the year
