I definitely see a case for Vernon over both Liut & Chabot, especially as a backup goaltender. I actually think there's no contest that Eddie Giacomin is the best backup in this draft. He's actually a better regular season goaltender than more than a few starters. However, his playoff portfolio is atrocious, which I fully understand why people stay away from him as a starter. He was not on our radar as a starter, but easily atop of our list as a backup.
