It seems odd that taking a risk on a 22-23 year old goalie is a good idea, but taking a risk on a 26-27 year old goalie with similar stats is a bad idea. As I said earlier, that argument seems like a thinly veiled attempt to justify the interest in Eriksson without falling into the category of people I was referring to in my original point.
I don't get why they should be in the conversation. They're too old to be prospects. The younger guy putting up great numbers is far more desirable than the older guys putting up slightly lesser numbers.
