Goalie prospects are very far from sure things...As a CBJ fan, I'm excited by Dansk, but goalie prospects, even first rounders fail a lot more than they work out.

Obviously, it would take a lot for Ottawa to give up Lehner (and I doubt they would anyway) but if you're the Jackets you do anything you can do get a guy like that, you can't take comfort in having 1st and 3rd round picks in the system...
