I think it's a terrible idea. But opinions are like *******s, everyone's got one.
That said, I'm not nearly as concerned
about who is going to back up Hank in 6 years as I am about rounding the current team into top form over the next 2 to 4. IMO we can wait another year or two before burning a first rounder on a goalie. Why not spend a 3rd or 4th and see how the kid develops over the next year or two? Perhaps we won't need to use a 1st. I know Henrik Lundqvist's don't grow on trees, and amateur scouting is better than it was...but certainly there are starting goalies to be had somewhere between the 1st and 7th rounds, no?
