Of the 30 starters last season, how many were acquired via trade post lockout? That's 7 seasons, so quite a long time.
Avs and Nucks with Varlamov and Luongo - Varly for a 1st and 2nd. Lu, Krajchek for Bert and Allen
Stars with Lehtonen - Ivan Vishnevsky and a 4th.
Halak - Eller and Schultz
Anderson - Elliott
Bry - spare parts as a soon to be UFA
Roloson - Wishart
Very mininal trades involving goalies.
Team isn't in a dire need for goaltending yet, so I would focus on getting Dmen or Forwards in the early rounds. Take a flyer on a goalie in the mid rounds and hope you get lucky and find another Rinne, Lundqvist, Quick from rounds 3 onward.
3 or 4 drafts from now, if you haven't gotten lucky on one of these goalies, then use a higher pick.
Not to many traded not because nobody wanted to but because once you ave a good one why trade them? Subban at 26 is a no brainer to me as he's the best asset available at the time if still available that is. However if someone like Tom Wilson slips to 26 which won't happen then ya you take him.
