Sorry, I should have made myself more clear.
I understand what you are saying but at #25 that goalie prospect is FAR FAR from a sure thing. Goalies are much harder to judge how they will progress to the NHL level than anyo ther position. Unless you are getting a sure thing in goal (like a Fleury or such) then using a lower 1st rnd pick is too much of a roll of the dice to warrent such. You are much better draftin skaters with your 1st and 2nd rnd picks and then taking all goalies after that. Drafting 4 goalies a year SHOULD produce at least 1 significant prospect.
