Teams almost never trade elite goalie prospects because they need them on their team at some point. In fact, the Rangers went thru something like this before with Richter and Beezer. It's rare and the Rangers seem to have a habit of getting into this situation.
I'm not certain which teams have great prospect goalies but a quick perusal through other team boards reveal fans who certainly think they have potential great ones in their systems. Beezer is a great example of goalies just not fetching that much in trades.

I cannot tell you how much I disagree with you that Tampa would do that and if they would could someone please make Sather make it happen. To not do that deal from our standpoint would be self-sabotage.
