It seems teams have to be so sure they are drafting the right guy if they take a goalie with a 1st rounder.
Yeah, it's true. It's also exactly why you wouldn't see a goalie prospect like him moved at this point. Like wej20 said, teams just aren't going to want to fork over the value that Anaheim would want, and Anaheim would be insane to move him for anything less than a massive over payment. The kid has franchise potential, but it's such a volatile position, and it would be a huge risk for another team to make that kind of investment in him at this point.
