Our two goaltenders were drafted in the 7th round and not at all. We need depth. That doesn't mean it has to be addressed with a high pick. If a guy the scouts are absolutely in love with is available then sure. Draft him. Drafting a goaltender high just because we need depth is a stupid idea, though.
Absolutely, either take one really talented in the first round or gamble on late round and undrafted euro and college prospects. Otherwise you are quick to waste a 2nd round pick on a guy like Anthony Lafleur...
