If Grigs is falling that low, we damn well better be trading up.
On Subban, as others have said Schneider was drafted 8 years ago and is now finally ready for #1 duties. 8 years from now, Schneider will be the same age Luongo is now. We do have other goalies in our system like Lack and Cannata, but I foresee Lack being traded to start in another organization assuming we keep Schneider.
Still though, I don't like using 1st round picks on goalies and even defensemen unless it's a slam dunk. You seem to be able to get quality goalies and defensemen in the 2nd round or later, while it's much more difficult to find talented forward prospects later on in the draft. So far, Gillis seems to agree with me haha.. He's taken a forward in the 1st round every year he's had that pick (Hodgson, Schroeder, Jensen). Defensemen develop later so it's difficult to determine who will be good at the age of 18. It's easier with forwards to scout high end talent at that age. Just my two cents...
