Makarov is a mid rounder AT BEST. I would think 4-6 round, somewhere in there.

The LA Kings were the first team to draft a goalie last year, in the middle of the second round. And they have the best goalie in the NHL, and one of the top 3-5 young backups with elite potential. It is always a good idea to have plenty of goalie depth. If Andrei Vaslevski is there at 38 I would hope the Jets don't dismiss him cause he is a goalie, you take the BPA. But I doubt he is and there is no goalie the Jets should consider at 9.
