We can argue that Luongo was worth it and Dips was not. that's the only relevant part of information. Play compared with (among other things) position is all that seems relevant in this argument.

On a side note, i agree with your point about MAF being a mistake.
I agree that it wasn't really a determining factor in the state of the team. The point was that the worst GM in history has done this twice and you agree MAF was a mistake, so it would seem that it isn't something good GM's do often, if ever.

I never agreed with it, not saying it turned out bad, Price is actually one of the better picks in that draft to this point, but it's something I don't think teams should be doing, unless of course the goalie blows every other player away in the draft, which basically never happens, especially with top 5 picks.

Obviously he had a good team in front of him, but he played pretty good in his own right. Any goalie stats are a direct reflection of the team, it doesn't stop us from judging goaltenders based on their statistics.
