I think that drafting the top goalie in a draft year has to be done if you need a goalie ASAP. This is not our case. I don't mind draft one with one of our 2nd round pick (Subban, Vasilevski or the 6'5'' one???) if they are available cause we really need to add some goalies to our prospect pool, but spending a 1st round pick on one is a very bad idea IMO.
I certainly hope that Price is going to be our elite starter for the next 5+ seasons, but alot can change in a fairly short period of time...and right now we have nothing in goal in the organization outside of Price.

At any rate i'm not nearly familiar enough with this years draft crop, in particular the guys in the 20-40 range to suggest one way or another if it would be a good move to trade up for Subban, just throwing it out there.
