I know goalies are the huge risk, but I don't see it we will be lucky if a goalie will be drafted top 10 in the next 10 years unless a team needs a goalie really bad. Most of the better goalies now were 5th rounders etc. I'm just wondering if we will see a MAF anytime soon?

No Pittsburgh already screwed up taking him first and teams aren't going to follow in their footsteps.

I wouldn't say they screwed up, that "screw up" helped get them a Stanley Cup.

Pens took Fleury and the Islanders took DiPietro 1st overall.

The short answer is yes; it'll happen again. It might not be SOON, but it'll happen again.

Screwing up =/= Stanley Cup

Pretty much this. Might not happen for 10 years but then again it might.

Yeah, some idiotic team will. No team should ever draft a goalie 1st overall.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are proud to select from the Halifax Mooseheads of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League......Zach Furcale.

E.Staal went 2nd overall.


They could've had both Staal brothers, with Marc biding his time before joining them.

Kinda poor logic. If they had taken Staal maybe they would have won more than 1 cup.

1. Did they really need to trade up 2 spots to pick Fleury? I wouldn't say they screwed majorly up because I am guessing that trade was contingent on them picking Fleury(and Carolina taking Staal, so Florida would grab the guy they wanted in Horton at 3rd so the argument they should have taken Staal is a moot point) but it was rather pointless

One would have to ask who the goaltender would have been. There's no guarantee they would have signed another reliable goaltender to support them on a Stanley Cup run. Certain teams like Philadelphia are still searching for a goaltender capable of propelling them towards a Stanley Cup championship.

With so much well-scouted talent, why take the risk on a goalie who 2-3-4 years down the road MIGHT be a starting goalie for your team. Not plausible anymore the way the goalie position has evolved, where experience and development are key.

That makes no sense. As if history would have went exactly the same and now they'd have Staal's, Malkin Crosby etc.

And anyways, they won the cup with Fleury in net, it doesn't matter if he became ECHL scrub this season, the pick was a success.

So I guess that makes Anttii Niemi a success too then even though he clearly cost the Hawks some games along the way?

This. Some goalie will be seen as a generational talent and be taken number 1 overall. It only takes a few things aligning for it to happen.

I can't imagine why a team would care to.

Cam Barker was clearly a great pick, as the Hawks won the cup. Who knows what would have happened if they had taken Ladd?

The only two times it happened, it seemed like an idiot GM fell in love with Dipetro's puckhandling, which made him seem like a Brodeur type goalie, and the second time, a team really went for MAF who had crazy reflexes. But as history shows us they passed on way better skaters and there were better goalies to emerge later in the draft. So why bother?

I would never take a goalie in the first around again (unless things change drastically). But, I am sure some goalie will be hyped up and go first eventually. Just could be a long time.
