I was one of the ppl who wanted to take a goalie in the first round (although, that was before Teuvo and Maata were available when we picked) - but if Teuvo doesn't pan out, I still wouldn't criticize the team for not picking a goalie in the 1st round.

The bust factor is hard to assess when he's still in Europe (and injured) - but I think he has the most elite skills (whether he pans out or not) in the organization after Kane.

I really wish he'd quit Europe and played in the CHL this year. The competition wouldn't have been as top, but he'd probably have been the 1C, had 17+ minutes/game, been on the 1 PP, and had his intro to N-Am style (and adjusted to it) playing against teenagers (ie competition where he would dominate).
