To be fair, Beskorowany was our 1st overall selection that year. We didn't have many picks then we took a speculative goaltender much higher than most people thought he would go.

Desrosiers was our 4th selection in that draft, which is when team's start to look at goaltenders, especially since we don't have many good ones in the pipeline. I imagine they'll take another one this year but they'll wait till later in the draft unless a guy high on their list drops for some reason. Goaltenders taken early are generally a mistake. For every Carey Price, Kari Lehtonen, MAF, John Gibson there are a ton of guys who go by the wayside: Chet Pickard, Tom McCollum, Jake Allen, Mikko Koskinen, Joel Gistedt, Antoine Lafleur, Trevor Cann, and Jeremy Smith all of whom were taken in the 1st two rounds in 2007-2009. Goalie drafting is an even bigger draft crap shoot than skaters.
