As for Columbus addressing their goal tending problems through the draft, have you any idea how many years it takes to develop a goalie just drafted until, if successful, he could be considered even an average first string goalie in the NHL? Cory Schneider was a first round draft pick, so was considered to have a pretty good chance to make it compared to most and Cory is now just entering his 9th year of development and his first year as a number 1 goalie.
Yea we'll go with Bob. If he really sucks and we get MacKinnon, best move for the franchise. Could probably survive with average(Theodore) esque goaltending with all that talent after that.

Why can't you understand how little sense your proposal makes for Columbus? Yea we want to give up our future for a 10th place finish...
