Drafting goalies is a waste of a pick.
There is always capable NHL goalies on the market and its been proven that you don't need an elite NHL goalie to win cups.
Niemi, Crawford, Thomas, MAF all have a cup and none of those guys are elite goalies.
While I agree with you that you can find future potentially Elite goalies several years after they are drafted... if that was what you were trying to say.
What nonsense are you spouting about the team Canada invite, a multiple Vezina winner and former top 5 pick... all of them with a Stanley Cup ring... these are NOT Elite goalies?!?!?!
I get that some folks are trying to keep a level head about this but considering that the "big" club is still junk it is a little concerning to see our prospects being schooled like this. If the Oilers were making significant strides at the NHL level I wouldn't give a crap about these kids being beaten up in a prospects tournament. As it stands we need some of these players to pan out.
Ehhh, not one of these Oilers kids is expected to compete to get an NHL job.
You can't say that about the Jets or the Flames prospect teams we've played.
