Even after 3 years you'd be looking at a .855 NHL svp, .905 ECHL svp goalie, not somebody that inspired much confidence.

I do kinda agree, still shocked that teams passed on Patrik Bartosak last year...
Right but Quick definately falls into that long-term development category, I guess the point I was trying to make was that no where in the 2011 draft has there or does there appear to be anytime soon seem like there is a Price, Mason, Bernier, Fleury, Varlamov, or any other guy that comes out of Juniors or Europe, NHL ready a couple years after he's drafted. All of the goalies from that year look like long-term projects like Quick was right now. Just pointed out what looks like a huge lack of high end goalies from that draft year.

Yeah Bartosak sort of came out of nowhere, was he even ranked for the 2011 or 2012 draft?
