When you have the best goalie coach in the world, you have to keep feeding him prospects to work with. Otherwise you are just wasting his talents. If you draft now, by the time a goalie is ready Rinne is nearing the end of his contract. I don't think drafting one is dire, but if there is a late gem I wouldn't hesitate to take him.
