Cedrick Desjardins TTM Success

I can't, for the life of me, figure out why Cedrick is not in the NHL.  In 2010-11, the Lightning were struggling and couldn't find a goalie.  They then brought Cedrick up for 2 games.  His stats in those 2 games, 2 wins, a 1.00 GAA, and a .968 save percentage.  They then traded his rights to the Avalanche, and he was sent to their minor league affiliate, the Lake Erie Monsters.  He had a great season down there but still didn't get a call up.  So he signs with the Canadiens on a 2-way deal, knowing that Budaj and Price are both on 1 way deals, so the only chance he has at getting called up, is if one of those guys gets hurt.  Anyway, the Bulldogs are not that great this year, so he is 6-12-2 so far, but good GAA and Save percentage.  I saw him play in Hamilton a couple of years ago and he was amazing.  I thought for sure he would be the next guy to turn heads in the NHL.  Hopefully, he gets that chance again.
