Ok, how'd that work out for 3rd round draft pick Adam Morrison, 5th round draft pick Nicola Riopel (who many on this board were gung ho over based on his fantastic numbers in juniors which translated into 22 games in the AHL with a GAA over 3.35) and 3rd round pick Jacob DeSerres (now playing at the University of Calgary)?

It's great that so many are excited about a local kid who is a goaltending prospect, but forgive me if I have no faith that this organization can draft, let alone develop, a goalie.
To bad for you. Me, I always have a positive attitude. Like Warren Zevon said "Enjoy every sandwich" Dam good outlook to have.
