Posters have said such things like, 28th pick is great than Schneider, or that he isn't worth as much as Hedman, or that Connelly is worth more.
The facts are this. He is in the top 10 in every important goaltending category. People say say he unproven as a starting goalie, well so is Hedman unproven as a 1/2 dman, and Connelly can barely break into TB line up. We don't know what, or if they will get any better....they might have topped out! You don't know. And if Cory has topped out, you still have a bonified star!
And Draft picks don't always turn out! Does anyone remember who was drafted first overall the year Hank and Daniel were drafted!
Why do you think, there are so many teams that are interested in Cory? He is proven and draft picks and young prospect are not.....at best it is risky.
It takes 4 or 5 years to develope a goalie, if you are lucky, he plays in the NHL. You are grasping at straws if you know a goalie will be good when you draft him, that is why Cory is so valuable!
Geesh!......................Man I fell better!
