We also need to fuel the system with some goalie depth...
None of the guys drafted after LeBlanc scream Best Player Available. He was drafted about where everybody had him, being a local kid was just a bonus. People are panicking a bit too much due to his off year, the guy just turned 22 and he looked to be on the right track before this year(11-12 22 points in 31 AHL games and 10 points in 42 NHL games at 20).

I can see it with Fischer but at this point it's just speculation. From what we have heard Timmins has had the freedom of choice at the draft.
