Look at the goalies in the NHL that are considered elite right now, and the people that were considered elite 3 years ago even. It's 2 pretty different lists.

I find it hard to really say any one draft/year is the key to our success. 2009 wasn't great, but 2008, and 2010-2012 are all looking very helpful
agreed.... over the past decade or so tending has become the easiest position to solve (outside of bottom-6 forward and bottom pairing defenders of course)... there are always lots of goalies available and it seems that there are 2-4 surprise tenders each and every year... i'm really not worried about tending at all to be honest, it will sort itself out
