Either the Leafs draft Subban, Dansk, or Vasilevski at 35th, or we trade for a young guy.
Justin Pogge, Jonas Gustavsson, J.S. Aubin, Andrew Raycroft...these were a few goaltenders in your system that were young and had great track record previously in their career except they lacked the consistency and calm demeanor of a veteran.

The point is...how long are you going to gamble on the young goaltenders before you realize that you need an actual star?

What do you think? Comment!
Are you serious...? The Blues have a bunch of cap space and are in no rush to give away their top goaltenders especially for an unproven prospect (doesn't matter how good they've played in juniors). Besides both Halak's and Elliott's contracts expire in the same year, so that gives Blues' management a chance to look at who's more talented before going all in.
