I completely discredit the Ducks' goalie prospect because even if he is the best goalie in Junior hockey at the moment, that means incredibly little in the context of being an NHL starting goalie. The position is simply way too hard to predict until the guy actually starts playing in the NHL.

As for Colborne, the guy has shown some upside putting up 6 points in 11 NHL games... and in regards to his AHL performance, your math needs some work.

How did that turn out??? Heck, let's go back 5-6 years ago and see how late 1st and 2nd round goaltenders turned out. Joel Gistedt, Antoine Lafleur, Trevor Cann, Jeremy Smith, Leland Irving, Michal Neuvirth, Jhonas Enroth, Tyler Plante, Jeff Frazee, Ondrej Pavelec, Pier-Olivier Pelletier. How many of those names do you recognize?
