Late round picks are happy to get to the NHL at 25/26. First rounders want to get to the big show on a fast track. Goalies historically take longer to develop. That's why I feel we should take a goalie every year with a late round pick. If he doesn't earn the ELC after his first two years or four years after NCAA, no big deal, Most late round picks bust anyway. But if we continue with this practice, Maybe at some point we will hit on the Next Henrik Lundquist.
I don't think there is a need to do this. Would much rather sign a college starter like Ben Scrivens types and hope one of them pan out eventually. Henrik is here for 8-12 more years imo.
