And as for the sentence in bold. The same can be said about forwards drafted in the 1rst round. It's not unique to goaltenders.



Exactly...that's just a stupid way of thinking when people say that a team shouldn't waste a high draft pick on a goaltender. Hell, the best goaltender of the whole league, and maybe even the best on in the history was picked in the first roung.

Sure Miller was a low pick, but Ward was a first rounder. Luongo is pretty good, and guess what, he was a first round pick.

Anyways, Price has everything to be a great goaltender in the NHL and last year, he was our best goaltender at the training camp...let's just wait 2 more years...
