Brodeur was our favourite goalie for this draft, mainly due to his proven playoff success. at this level, you won't get much more playof success than that. I don't think there is any advantage among the top-5 netminders and our other favourites ara all available.

Aside from that cup run and decent NHL career, he was one of the best WHA goaltenders ever.
He is 2nd in career wins in the WHA, won a championship there, and was tourney MVP in a Memorial Cup win. He also was the last remaining playing professional hockey player from the inaugural WHA season (indeed played too long, should've retired a couple of seasons before he did).

Myshkin, however, has clearly the best peak/playoffs of any goalie in this draft with three superb international tourneys against the best in the world.

VI - I'm just glad to hear that someone else knew about Smith and was actually going to take him.
I am still so sore that I decided to wait one more round before getting him.
