Teams that need Goalies

I just went through both Hockey Futures team sites and TSN's Depth Chart and I only found one team that needed a future goaltender and that's Los Angeles. My question to all of you is which team's you think might pick a first round goalie in this year's draft?

Los Angelos will pick a goalie this year, and the others may be Minnesota and Edmonton.

Minnesota has Harding, but i dont think they want to hang their hats on this guy, always good to have someone to compete with to help u develop.
Edmonton needs in goal are pretty real, with Conklin the starter for next year by default, they either have to acquire a vet or draft, and i think they will draft, they have 2 picks this year, there own at 17 and Philys which i think is like 26, 27 or 28,
if they use there first pick, they probably have a chance at who ever the Kings dont chose, the kings are at 11. If they use there second pick somthing tells me neither schwarz or montoya will be there, so dont be surprised if they pick Dubnyk.

Thats the way i interpret it,

Oilers are apparently about to sign Jeff Drouin Deslauriers, but even after that they have little depth below him.

I'd say they certainly would be a candidate to take a goalie, either at #14 or (more likely) when they use Philly's pick in the first round.

You forgot the Leafs... they should now learn to build their team via the draft...... oups, I just remembered they traded a lot of high draft pick recently... still, you can always pick good goaltenders in late rounds... (ex: Theodore in 2nd round and Vokoun 6th or 7th the same year)

Florida, Tampa, they might need some more depth as well.

Vancouver is a strong candidate to take a goalie in my opinion, especially now that Mensator has left North America.

yes but besides them they have nothing more. Also Colorado might take a goalie.

Agreed that Vancouver needs one...

Chicago also has Anderson and Crawford, it's going to take a while but Chicago has a lot of depth in goal.

New Jersey doesn't need a goaltender until Martin reaches 40ish...

Nashville certainly is looking for more depth in their goaltending pipeline. They have Finley and Lassila. Finley just finished his first injury free season in quite some time. He's only played 73 (1 NHL, 65 AHL , 7 ECHL) games over the past 3 seasons. So he's basically seen, in the past 3 years, the same ice time as a lot of goalies receive in a little more than a year. He's basically two years behind schedule and he isn't even the full-time starter in Milwaukee. Now he had a nasty stretch where he was arguably the hottest goaltender in the A. From late January till late March, he went undefeated and had a nasty 94 save % and a 1.7 GAA all on a very offensive-minded hockey team. His hot streak helped propel Milwaukee to the top ranked team in the A. He has ample talent, as much as he'll ever need. But he needs to show the consistency of a 22 year old instead of looking like a super talented 19-20 year old.

Lassila is an intriguing prospect that the Preds are very high on. He has been very good in short stints with TPS Turku and has a very, very nice playoffs this year. But as with all goalie prospects, you'd be foolish to bet the farm on him becoming your future starter.

After that, we have a few prospects who don't appear to amount to anything special. Sidikov and Lasak (who is wonderfully talented) will probably never be NHLers. And that leaves us with Vokoun, who turns 28 in a month. We are one bad injury away from being screwed. We likely won't take a tender in the first round (unless one absolutely blows us away). But we'll probably try to snag one with one of our mid rounders

toronto will probably draft a goaltender this year. After Tellquist they have virtually nothing with any promise

Bryan Murray will probably draft an older goalie in the later rounds, to go play in the AHL.

Those older Euro goalies, though, are the ones you want to get. Goalies like Checkmanek, Gerber, Nurminen, Nabokov, etc. were drafted in the later rounds of their draft years.

Nice list, but u might want to leave out the Starter and backup, not like the boys drafted this year will play, u need to do a little more digging.

but nice try

Tugnutt is as good as gone (UFA), but the Stars have 3 prospects in NA (Ellis, Bacashihua and Smith) that are able to back up Turco right now, of which the former 2 are top 5 prospects in the organisation. They also have a gem playing abroad (Tobias Stephan).. A goalie is the absolute last thing the Stars need.

Tugnutt is gone, and your forgetting about Ellis, Smith, and a guy in Switzerland named Stephan....if we draft a goalie this year, it better not be higher than the 6th round.

Columbus definitely needs to pick up another goalie this year. They're very thin in the organization beyond Leclaire. I don't think its a big enough need to use the team's 1st rounder on it (though it wouldn't completely shock me if MacLean traded down and picked one of Schwartz/Montoya -- unlikely, but possible).
If CBJ can pick up a 2nd rounder, I'd look for a goalie there. If not, they have three 3rds and I would bet one of those winds up being a goalie.

Anaheim should and undoubtably will draft a goalie this year. If Gerber is moved, as expected, that leaves just 3 netminders in the entire organization.

What about a team like Boston guys?

How do you think they can solve having both Raycroft and Toivonen for the future?
