I wouldn't be against it. I think it's time the Habs drafted a good quality goalie. Goaltending depth was always pretty good even when we were sucking. We drafted Theodore in the 2nd rd when we still had Roy. Then 2 years later we drafted Garon in the 2nd round. We drafted Price at a time when Theodore was considered one of the best goalies in the NHL and was expected to be a life time Hab. We also freaking drafted Halak for gawd's sake.

But the goalie mill has run dry since Price was drafted in 2005 - 8 years ago. Habs NEED to take a legit goalie prospect this year, if not the 1st round then the 2nd.

I'm not used to the Habs having no goalie depth. It had been an organizational strength for such a long time at one time.
Tristan Jarry will still be available in the 2nd round and could be the best goalie in this draft.
