Personnally, I prefer Vasilevski to Subban but I have no doubt Malcolm will be playing in this league.

My point about this issue is that you will CLEARLY see great goalies evolves even if they are picked in the other rounds. But if you have a great one in hands...why let him go just because it's too early? Should have Price gone to the 2nd or 3rd round?
I agree with your argument. And you know a hell of a lot more than me about junior players. If you say Subby Too is in the same category at his age as Price was, then I buy what you are selling.

But out of that special category, I still say it's best to pick goalies in round 2 or 3 at best.
