yeah, i think i agree with you. i have a habit of getting really excited about "high profile" promising goalies...but it's not what we need to be drafting right now...so i'll do my best to avoid wandering out onto the ledge this draft year

i feel really good about this draft. it's deep to begin with...and on top of that there are always players who drop. drafts under bowman have been good so far ... so i think we'll be fine.

i'd love to see someone like lazar or shinkaruk drop. improbable, but look at teuvo
