About the goalies, me too. I would love to get Comrie or Martin in the second, both have a ton of upside, but they are pretty far away from the NHL (well at least Martin).
I guess it is just that I see Nurse play more. I have not seen a full game for Ristolainen and there aren't many highlights. All I know is they are similar players and that Nurse has more size and has offensive upside and plays physical.
I saw Craig Button's monthly draft rankings and Ristolainen was at #19 while Nurse was #23.
As for the goalies, they have all the time they want to develop since Montreal already has Price. It would be good to have some depthe behind him.
