As I said in the main draft thread, looks like the Jets are fond of the NCAA development route for goalies.
It does make sense, it keeps them in a developmental situation where they're not having to burn years off their ELC. Look at a guy like Carozzi, he would now be entering his junior or senior year at an NCAA program, now he's basically going to have to crack the St. J's roster to have any chance of sticking around beyond his ELC. That's really unfortunate, given that goalies have a much more gradual development curve than players. Carozzi will probably amount to nothing, but he could also be one of those late bloomers.
I think this amounts to very smart development and asset management from the Jets.
