The thing about goalies is that if you need one, there`s always one available. There are always 2-3 teams around the league with a goalie glut who will move a quality guy for the right offer.
Flipside is that even if a drafted guy turns out, it might be at a point where he isn`t needed and you`re forced to sell him at pennies on the dollar.
It`s a far better use of assets to trade them for a goalie when you need him than spend them developing question marks.
