He's listed as a 7.0 D on the website, but his combination of size, poise and quickness make him a legitimate #1 goalie prospect in my opinion. All things considered I think we have no reason to believe the Flames would trade for a goaltending prospect.
Yeah the Flames have a couple of decent goalie prospects - Gillies is likely the best now, but Brossoit is decent as well. And they still have Ortio.

That said young goalies are tough to project so it might not be a bad thing to have more. Of course eventually you run into a problem of having no place to play all of them....
