If it fails, we can start drafting goalies in 2015. Lundqvist is a goalie, they last longer because they dont get physically beat up, so he should be good until at least 2020, maybe longer.

Worst case, there is always a goalie like Luongo and Thomas who is available. The low price of goalie acquisition vs the high risk of a goalie prospect going bust makes drafting them a sucker's bet.
Agreed - as far as high picks go. If there's someone you really like available in the 6th or 7th (like Hank), you should opportunistically grab him.
