Which Buffalo has been doing lately. Took a goalie every other draft for a while heading into last year, then broke the trend grabbing a goalie in the late rounds 2 years in a row. Plus adding Hackett via trade and Makarov via FA and with Enroth starting to rebound/play well down the stretch, we've got a decent crop of young goalies. There's definitely no need to burn a high pick on a goalie prospect this year.
