Goaltending Scouts - Oilers (Guy F)

Again for Guy F or other posters:

If the Oilers are contemplating taking a goalie in the first round in the 2004 draft (first time in team history) besides KP who else in the Oilers scouting department can give a good analysis. Would Pete Petters be involved as well in this important decision since he knows a thing or 2 about goaltending or his work is with the pro's?

Andrew Verner (2nd rounder), Pat Dovigi (2nd rounder), Mike Menard (4th rounder), Chris Wickinhieser (4th rounder), Adam Hauser (3rd rounder)........all of these goalies the Oilers drafted from round 2-4 have been collesal flops except Jussi and if the Oilers want to draft a goalie, hopefully they have good reports and comfortable with this.

I know all those "flops" were under Fraser and the drafting is better and lets hope for JDD!

Pete Peeters made it very clear to me last training camp that he is not a scout, he's the goalie coach. The goalie scout is John Stevenson but all the scouts do look at goalies.

I wouldn't classify Hauser as a failure at all... he refined his game and was excellent this year...

To bad he isn't Oiler property anymore though.

What do you mean. Fuhr was a number 8 overall pick I believe.

And I think with the signing of JDD we MAY get a goalie later on since they are a crap shoot anyways. I would be shocked if we used a 1st on a goalie this year. Lowe has said a few times he is looking for an impact sniper

But Lowe also said to "expect the unexpected", and you would also wonder if Lowe would want to tip his hand too much to the other teams, either...

Although it shouldn't be a secret that the Oilers could use a sniper...which team couldn't?
