On the other hand, if you think that Ladd will turn out to be an elite 1st-line winger and Montoya will become just another goalie, then you have a good point.
Either way, there's not much the Rangers could have done about Carolina picking Ladd 4th...
well, they could have prevented them from acquiring the pick altogether... maybe it was the only deal that columbus would make, i dont know...
your right on Luongo, he seems to be the only goaltender in the league right now who carries his teams...i think that is an exception, not the norm
