McKeens had him as their top goalie:
Draft is a win
Had him as the 2nd best goalie. Like this one.
Great pick. The first one I'm really on board with.
FIgured this was coming in some capacity
Knew they'd go goalie early...which I'm not really in favor of as a philosophy... but if they were going to anyway I Like the player.
So happy we got a decent G prospect. I just want another Murray on our team, not asking for much from Botts
Seems like a nice pick. Performed really well and has a long frame.
A Finnish goalie? Risto happy.
3rd best goalie in the draft, well we needed one. Good pick again.
Not overly thrilled with 1. Reasonably happy with 2. Really like this pick for bpa and need.
ISS also has him as their top goalie.
We already have Brett Murray in the system.
Late second is not early for any type of pick, come on man. We can't rely on 6th rounders for G prospects forever I posted some stats a while back. Your chance of nailing a starter beyond round 4 are like 5%. We could have used the 3rd but I am fairly certain the top 4 prospects are gone by then. Good pick for sure no matter how he turns out
Not enough K's in his name.
Wrote up a small bit about him. The TL;DR is he's got high upside but there are serious issues there.
Finnish goalie? Good choice.
Rayzor will be even more entertaining in his attempts to pronounce.
Wanted defence here, such a crapshoot position don't like take goalies in the first two rounds but oh well
My philosophy is to take a big Nordic goalie in the last three rounds every year and move on with your life. The draft position odds don't apply on goalies...there is almost no rhyme or reason to it.
