I have no concerns about makarov being their in the second, and would honestly prefer to wait till the 4th and later to draft a goalies..

Goalies are rarely taken in the first and only if they really show something amazing, as history dictates your 4-7th round goal,y is just as likely to be a star as your top 30 picked.

Being passed over once and with dansk, subban, and vas all being ranked higher, i find it highly unlikely that all of those three will even go in the first.

WIth Pav's being young and sharp, and pasquale showing himself to be a legitimate goaly prospect, It seems like bad asset management to use high a pick on very long term project who in a worst case scenario wouldn't even be needed for 5+ years.
