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?
7 of them
