We can always sign or trade for a mid-range goalie like we did with Dunham. Considering all our gapping holes, we can ill-afford to waste picks on goalies, especially considering how unpredictable their development is.

We have Chad Johnson, Zaba and Wiik, and one of them should be able to fill in behind Vally. I think Vally can reasonably speaking start, at least for a few weeks/months.

Let's fill our shortage of scoring forwards, then we'll deal with goalies. The next 3 years, all the first and second rounders should be forwards, unless someone really good slips to us. But the bias should definitely be for forwards with reasonable top-6 potential, even if they are a higher risk.
