if you want a waste of a pick, draft a goalie lol. Hellloooo Al Montoya, MA Fleury in the best draft ever and apparently Jack Campbell among many many others. You can go find joe blow in Europe for nothing who's probably better
Just to be the contrarian here, you could end up with Tukka Rask, Marty Brodeur, Cam Ward or Carey Price if you take a goalie in the first round. You could draft a forward in the first round that turns into Pavel Brendl, Jamie Lundmark, Patrik Stefan when guys like Pavel Datsyuk, Ryan Callahan or Brett Hull are just waiting there in the later rounds. You could easily go to Europe and nab a defenseman like Brian Rafalski, or sign Andy Greene as an undrafted free agent instead of wasting a first round pick on Cam Barker.
Just to be clear, I would have a Jets fan draft day reaction if the Devils took a goalie with the ninth pick. Things just aren't as simple as "never draft a goalie in the first round".
