    How many goals/points do you see Kaliyev doing next season in the OHL? And what about the following year assuming he would stay in the OHL?

    What about Spencer Knight? I don't think Lindgren is the long term answer to price...price is 32 this year. We have restocked our D and FWD's the past few drafts. I think it's time to get more depth in that dept. besides Primeau.

    At #15 no. If he somehow drops to our pick in the 2nd then I'd definitely go for it. Primeau and McNiven isn't bad goaltending prospect depth.

    I thought we might have learned a lesson by now about never selecting a goalie in the first round. Quality goalie prospects can be found anywhere, no need to reach for one with an early pick.

    Goalie development to too hard to predict. Your goalie prospects are pretty good. Keep taking shots in the later rounds, no need to waste high picks imo

    Early to mid 2nd is where I think some of the top hole prospects should go (Hart, Demko...)

    What lesson should we have learned? The last goalie I remember drafting in the first round was Price...not a bad pick. Along with Price...Vaslilevsky, Rask, Fleury, Dubnyk, Schneider, Varlamov, Luongo were all firsts. If he is rated high on your board then he has to be in consideration.

    I’d rather wait until next year and draft Askarov. I don’t know how if he’ll end up being a better goalie then Knight but he’d be my choice.

    Only really special goalies should be drafted in the 1st. Price was very special. I dont think Knight is special.

    Is Knight a generational goalie talent?

    There are very few generational goalie talents in general.

    He sure is a great goalie prospect, though.

    He's not 15 special, but he's late 1st special.

    There’s one goalie and 18 skaters. I’d rather focus on getting skaters. I agree that another good goalie in the pipeline wouldn’t hurt, but I don’t think using a 15th overall pick when you lack overall talent is smart.

    Same amount of points with his plus-minus growing to a paltry -68

    No.

    Goalie should not be picked in first round in my opinion. With a good team a little above average goalie is enough. And someone can find such a goalie outside the first round.

    And now imagine the same team with elite goaltending

    Aka
    Washington
    TB
    Pittsburgh
    LA
    Chicago
    Boston

    Or almost every single team that has won the cup in the past

    This whole conversation stems from basically my own agenda, I'm not a fan of teams picking G's or D's in the first round, Ive said so many times, but Price WAS a good pick. The guy is a legit HOF goaltender, there's jut no way around that.

    The point is to do well in the playoffs we need a much better team in front of the goalie. Right now, that means puck moving defensemen, fast and skilled forwards ideally with some size. This is the priority before a goalie in the first round, again only my opinion.

    And between defenseman or forward I think it is harder to find an elite forward so go with the forward in the first round if a good one is available.

    5 D go top 14... Podkolzin and Newhook are on the board still... who do you take?

    I'm sure I'll get roasted but I'd still go with Pod. I'd be ecstatic either way though.

    Newhook without an ounce of hesitation, the guy is just much better at every single thing.

    For me it's pretty tough. I think the Russian factor would have me leaning Newhook, but removing that from the equation I think I'd go with Pod as well, he just has more power to his game. It's funny a bit since these are likely the two forwards who could drop, yet if I was picking 6th in this draft, they'd still be the two guys I'd be choosing between. Boldy would be considered as well, but I just think these two have a bit more upside to be dynamic offensive players. Really, really hope we get one at 15.
