Disagree.

1) We are in a good position to select a goalie. At 28, we'll probably get the 1st goalie off the board, which may be a better value than the 15 forward or dman.

2) Hank may get hurt at some point. He may leave in free agency.

3) If we pick a goalie, there is no guarantee he'll make it. Waiting to take one and then expecting him to become a #1 is not a good strategy. I'd rather have two #1 goalies than none.

Bonus) Taking the goalie the devils want
