It's always smart to draft a goalie. I can't say I know anything about him, but most big-name goalies are taken outside of the 1st/2nd rounds afaik.

 

I'm crossing my fingers on this one.

If you're going to take a stab at something late, my preference is a big goalie. Pretty happy with this draft.

I agree never bad idea to add goalie. Though did add from NCAA this year. 

A little curious that we didn’t draft a single D.

Long term contracts on D incoming.

 

Add those to Hughes, Juolevi, Woo, Tryamkin, Brisebois, and Rathbone and I guess they think they`re good on D for now.

Looked like Benning really, really, really wanted a power forward this year. He drafted what 4-5 of them.

I remember watching that game and was like "damn whoever picks him up is in for a treat" and now we're here. 

 

Speaking of which, what is it with Latvian goalies having insane games against Canada?(Sochi 2014)

I lovs that name ;)

This is actually modern modification of the foreign surnames by the Latvian government. Originally this was a routine Russian surname of Silov. By the new Latvian rules they add "s" at the end of each surname.

He stood on his head during a few games at the U18’s. Latvia got absolutely shelled and Silovs played great, not allowing any soft goals from my recollection. He stayed very composed as well. This guy could be a gem.
