Could the best goalie be taken in the 5th round? Sure, sometimes those things work out that way, but if they like a guy - go get him. Vasilevski and Subban look to be what i would call a 'blue-chip' prospect, to me. Will they pan out or will another goalie drafted in the 5th round be better? Who knows, but i say, go get the guy that you feel may have the best chance.
With 3 picks in the 2nd round, i'm hopeful one will be used on a goalie who the Jets feel is bpa, at that point.
How about Jack Campbell, is he a blue-chip prospect?
You're using the term too loosely IMO. Blue-chip shouldn't mean "likely" it should mean for all intents and purposes they're a shoe-in as an impact player for an NHL team. There shouldn't be too many blue-chip players.
I'm all for bpa, but I'm still more comfortable when the bpa turns out to be a forward or defenseman in the first two rounds. Especially when this draft is looking to have great depth and isn't that great goaltender-wise IMO.
