You don't waste a high draft pick to help Hartford. There are plenty of goalies like Dov who would do a competent job in the AHL and can be signed to a slightly above middle class salary.

They may take a stab at someone like Stajcer in the late rounds, but they aren't wasting early picks to help Hartford.

I fully expect Lundqvist to play here another 7 seasons because top goalies go to the age 38 without a problem. Patrick Roy played 63 games with 2.18 GAA and .920%. Brodeur played 56 games 2.45 and .903%. Hasek in his early 40s was still getting very close to 2.00 GAA and a great save percentage.

Behind him we still have Talbot. I expect him to be ok being a backup for the next couple of years, then we'll see.
