I thought this choice was a lot stranger than questioning Stolarz or calling Mason inconsistant. I agree with the latter two. Mason is still fairly young and I have higher hopes for him than I have for a goalie we've had in a long time. Stolarz has had 2 very good regular seasons in junior and two disasters in postseason. If that isn't a big question mark on his potential I don't know what is. Only time will tell if he can handle pressure.
But Nick Shmaltz at #17? Isn't he like a mid-2nd rounder? I'd think there are far better prospects at position of need, or BPA than Shmaltz.
