The thing that concerns me about Lodge is yeah he's 6'2" but he's listed at only like 165 lbs. Thats way too thin to able to play a power forward game in the NHL. We already have Huberdeau that we're worrying about needing to put on pounds and he's not as tall and weighs more than that. If we're taking a shot on someone in that range, I'd rather it be someone like John Hayden from the USNDTP who's 6'3" and 220 lbs already.

Also hope we find a way to use a pick on a goalie too this yr. I havent read anything about the goalies though this yr outside of Fucale so I'm behind in that dept. Any decent options for us in the 4th or 5th round (since we lack a 3rd rounder and I dont feel we should use a 2nd on a goalie)?
Agreed. Picking a goalie when our big goalie prospect is about to make the jump to NHL seems like the prudent thing to do. Slow and steady stream in case whatever happens.
