Or a real gutsy pick would be Yaro Askorov, the lighting fast russian goalie prospect out of russia who is considered the best goalie prospect in years. He keeps getting compared to Andrey Vasilevskiy who Yzerman took in the first round for the Lightning so he has a history of not being afraid to go goalie in the first round.
Well the last 4 years of suckage has built them a nice young core going forward.
Vilardi, Kupari, Turcotte and now i would imagine Byfield to go with it will they ever start to turn this around with Blake at the helm?
I guess it will give Hextall a nice solid base to take over with once Blake gets canned next year i would imagine and Ron takes over.
It's either Rossi, Drysdale, or Askorov if you ask me.
I'm with you on Drysdale as my first choice, if for no other reason because our depth at the blue line is pretty thin. He would be a lovely addition to the PP units. I think that a good bit of our offensive problem is our inability to get the puck out of our own zone. We need more talent to be able to activate what talent we have up front.
I like the Askorov idea also. We need SERIOUS help in net.
