For all Marks success finding quality players (skaters) in the early to mid picks, it seems picking a goalie early has been an issue. For different reasons. Zador didnt pan out, the Jenkins tragedy, and now a wonky knee or two from Herbst.
Mark has however had some success with late picks or FA goalies. Mason, Houser and now hopefully Stolarz

Its gonna take some real hard work, a top notch physio program/therapist and some good fortune for Herbst to have a chance to reach his pre draft potential. Best of luck moving forward, youre in tough.
Herbst's career is gonna be uphill from here on out. Trust me..coming from an ex-goalie..he's gonna have knee problems for life. You can't "fix" knees. Once you have invasive surgery..no matter how minor..you're done.
