I think if London takes a goalie early in this draft that will tell you alot about the Herbst situation going forward especially if it`s a highly touted one.
I see your point and don't really disagree. I can't fault Hunter though for taking who he thought was the best player available. Who knows, Herbst might actually overcome it but like others I doubt it considering what history tells us.

Either way I don't think you'll see a goalie taken early this year. Their goaltending should be set for next year barring Stolarz making the AHL. Saw on the London Knights forum that people want to ship Patterson out in the summer. I wouldn't be so quick to do that unless you get an offer you can't refuse.
