Oh Boy !!!

Calling Mathieu Garon a potential top five goalie is laughable at best. The guy can be a pretty good starting goalie, but nothing great. His history through Juniors and AHL tells us that he has a distinct ability to blow come crunch time. He has all the physical tools to be a great goalie, but his mental makeup is questionable.

That doesn't mean that the Kings did bad on draft day. They actually did pretty good.
