Drafting Malcom is a terrible idea. I can already see Price being booed out of town by the mobs fans after Malcolm have two good games.

Vasilesvski would be great.

With Subban and that other guy probably gone before our pick, what are the other draft options?
Oscar Dansk seems to be the 3rd highest ranked goalie, projected to go late in the 1st or early in the 2nd so we would have a good chance at getting him at 33rd.

We've traded a few young goalies recently in Halak, Desjardins and Ramo, it's time to add some quality depth there. Doubt Budaj could man the fort for a month or two if Price goes down to injury during stretch drive. Subban be too high a pick unless he slides to Nashville's 2nd rounder. For now, I'd like to try for Hackett in a trade, something like that

The same would happen with Vasilevski...

So are we starting the Price/Subban goalie debate now or waiting until the draft?
I`m pro Subban, he`s got 919 SV% plus Carey is a girly name which causes the lack of mental toughness.

If Subban is still there 2nd round I say draft him. This draft is a little different than most. After the first 15 picks or so the talent level drops off more than most drafts. After 15th pick be a lot never make it or future journeymen NHLers with the odd wildcard draftee sprinkled in go on to good career.

If we can get a #1 center with our first pick then Subban with our 2nd, maybe even a Nieves, Hart or Suter with our other 2nd pick be a good draft considering the talent available. This is what I would hope for.

Budaj is not an everyday NHL starter & no other goalie in our organization is showing signs of having even NHL back-up potential.

it's a weakness that needs to be addressed, even if the hope is that Price is the permanent solution for the next 5-10 years.
Agreed, and we should take advantage of what seems to be a good ability of developing young keepers.
You can never have too many good players, and I don't think Price is the best goalie to ever be. There would be nothing wrong with developing another young keeper that could possibly take over whenever Price becomes too expensive.

Does't make much sense to trade for a promising young goalie.

Having depth in goals? Why? We can't afford this to happen,what happens if that goalie becomes better then Price? We already had a hard time getting rid of that Halak guy,we can't afford to have this type of situation happen again!

Halak is becoming "the Luongo" of Habs board goalie threads
The bottom line is we need more good goalies even if Price lives up to expectations.

Width is what really counts for a goalie. We need someone who can cover the whole width of the net when he flops on the ice, a la Priceless. Also, he should have a good glove hand. (show our goalie coach the film of Roy in the 1986 playoffs against the Rangers.)

But the team needs to think of adding some depth and sooner rather then later.

the Devils have wasted a few goalie prospects (ari Ahonen comes to mind) because they just couldn't develop by playing 10 games a year behind Brodeur and they had no future in the AHL exactly because of that.

I don't see the point of wasting a high draft pick on a goalie. Let's solve our problems before doing that. If we can't sign Price for a very long-term contract, then maybe next year it would be time to think about it.

Vancouver developed Schneider pretty well.

I don't see any point in drafting a goalie in the top 2 rounds, take a flier on guys later in the draft, as we know goalies are unpredictable and hope 1 out of the handful we draft develop into something.

No need. Pop a 5th or 6th rounder on an obscure Scandinavian goalie.

The last goalie we picked was Simila (2009 Mr. Irrelevant) and I'd rather sign Conz and Eriksson than to take a goalie in the first 2 rounds, given that Subban or Vasilevski (or even the Swedish goalie that played at the WJC) would be unhappy as a Hab the day they make it to the big team.

It's an asset and gives you another option if Price falters or gets hurt...or wants to leave at some point(trade or UFA).
