Having a young #3 better than the backup down in Providence as insurance for the next few years while Rask is around would be ideal. Shame we don't have that right now and that important #3 spot is held by a huge bust who happens to have a famous last name and was a 1st rounder so is still here taking the place of someone better (anyone would be better.)


Not sure if we can scout the goalies well enough to make this a smart move.


Don't see us picking top 10 even with how bad we look right now just too much crap in the east. If we miss the playoffs the pick is 9-11 at best.
Yes, let's draft ANOTHER goaltender in the 1st round. Talk about repeating mistakes.

Completely biased based solely on being a season tix holder however, the Mooseheads have a kid already turning heads, Nico Hischier, draft eligible next summer. I`m not close to being qualified as a scout nor am I rarely correct in projections but I can see him being a sure fire first rounder.

A bit slight right now but talent to burn, already plays a very mature game

Good to hear he is doing well!

PS: by the way the "Swiss McDavid" thing wasn't my invention... http://thehockeywriters.com/nico-his...wiss-prospect/

I don't disagree, but I think that was the idea behind Senyshyn and Debrusk.

If only we can get Seny to pass the puck

Gabrielle as well.

I think Sweeney is doing a great job with the draft. The only puzzling move was Frederic last year when a guy like Mascherin was available but oh well..we'll see how that pans out.

Meh, as Krejci and Krug get back in game shape, and Rask and Backes and Vatrano return, I suspect the team will be right around where they were last year.

Backes is 33y next offseason, Bergeron 32y, Krejci 31y.
I hope they don't ignore that like they did blueline for years.

6'3 Vesalainen could be option for that. I trust Frolunda with their development.

Some people DO NOT LEARN! If Sweeney even suggests taking a goalie in the first round he would be run out of town.

If there is another Ovechkin out there, not necasarily Russian or as weird as Alex but just a tank that can play in any situation and score those money goals they need to find him!
Personally, I would look first at guys who are considered to be NHL ready. There's never any guarantee but they do exist, it's up to the scouting staff to weed them out...

That statement is more silly than the Bruins drafting Subban when they did was.

Look if the Bruins get a top 10 pick, of course you don't draft a goalie.

If they end up in the 18-30 range and the best goalie in the draft falls to them it is not unthinkable to consider taking said goalie. A goalie drafted now will be 22 or 23 when Rask's contract expires.

i think he draft eligible for the upcoming draft, i've seen LHD Scott Walford for Victoria a few times. Not flashy, but decent skater and always seems to make the right play. Listed at 6'2 190, he looks like he could fill out to 215ish easy. I dunno if he's on anyone's radar or where he's expected to go, but i like his game

What else sucks is that we may be sellers at the deadline and the only expiring contract we have is Moore so the chance to load up on picks is minimal. Oilers 2nd may not even be all that great now. Moore if we go into a sell off maybe tops out at a 3rd rounder.
Forgot about Liles. As you see what we gave up for him last year his return would be minimal. With a stroke of wild luck maybe we could convince someone to take Hayes

i did a quick study of the success rate drafting goalies in first round outside the top 10 picks. i choose a 20 year sample between 1990 and 2009 since goalies take awhile to develop

there was 31 goalies drafted

the best were
martin brodeau
jean sebastien gigure
cory schnieder
tuuka rask

4 of 31 picks turned into elite goalies

then comes this group
dan cloutier
martin biron
cam ward
devon dubynk
seymon varlemov
marc denis

6 guys that were pretty decent starters for awhile

the next group played some...

trevor kidd
johnathon bernier
brian boucher

so we are up to 13 of 31 guys now...the remaining 18 guys here show why drafting goalies in first round sucks...

tyler moss
eric fichaud
evgeni ryabchikov
craig hillier
jean francois damphouse
jean mark pelletier
patrick desrochers
matthew choinard
maxime oulette
ari ahonen
jason bacasihun
adam monroe
hannu toivonen
marek scwartz
miko helenius
leland irving
chet pickerd
tom mccullum

as you can see most starting goalies in nhl were never drafted in first round... and teams that used a first round pick on a goalie had about a 10% chance of being happy

im editing to point out rask, gigure, schnieder were all traded by their origional teams as goalies are very slow to develop

other famous goalies drafted in the top 10 didnt turn out too well either

calgary drafted brent krahn
nashville brian finley
islanders took louongo but traded him
then took diepietro
rangers struckout on dan blackburn
pascal leclair flaired out
of course montreal did good with price but we see hes the exception

its very very bad idea to draft goalies in first round
