I'm also cautious of how goalie prospects will translate to the NHL level, but I still follow their career trajectories. Besides, people should be wary of prospects of any position, not just goalies. I see a lot of posters claiming that a player can be a "second or third line player" without any perspective of what kind of players occupy those positions. It's a long trek for any prospect to not only make the NHL, but to have real value that warrants the team's patience.

And let's not put a cup-winning goalie in the same category as busts. Flyers would be super lucky to have Fleury.
Are you kidding me? Most Pens fans even want him gone. Trent Dilfer won a SB. That doesn't mean he was a great qb.
