You do realize that Esche is, himself, a fifth-round draft pick, right?

Phoenix' 5th choice, 139th overall, in 1996 Entry Draft.

So, what you're saying is that undrafted free agents (like Ed Belfour and Niklas Backstrom) and 5th-round draft picks (like Miika Kiprusoff and Ryan Miller) absolutely can not become good NHL goalies?

Wake up, kid.

Here's your homework assignment, since you're clearly still of grade-school age: Go to NHL.com and research when Dominik Hasek, Henrik Lunqvist, and Evgeni Nabokov were drafted (at which position).
