This is a ridiculous statement. Prior to that draft year, we had one goalie prospect in the system, and we were and still are pretty sure he's not the answer in net long term. So we took two well regarded goalies. What exactly is the problem with that?

Sixth round picks are essentially lottery tickets anyway, at that point in the draft, nobody is a sure thing.
