True...if your intent is to hold onto a goalie until they become servicable. I'm after max trade value, no goalie that I pick up will have much chance of ever making my team.
I've just started doing a bit of digging into both of the guys you mentioned. Here's an interesting article on Grubauer for those who are interested:
Here's a little writeup from HF on Pasquale:
11. (NR) Ed Pasquale, G, 6.5C
Drafted 4th round, 117th overall, 2009
A dream season in 2011-12 saw Ed Pasquale shoot up the prospect rankings and become the undisputed top goalie prospect for the Jets. Riding the momentum of a strong preseason, Pasquale won the starting job in St. John's despite stiff competition from veteran pros David Aebischer and Peter Mannino. Pasquale started all 15 playoff games in the IceCaps run to the semi-finals and earned national attention with some spectacular saves at timely moments. The 6'3 netminder will look to carry over that form into training camp and battle offseason signing Mark Dekanich, another AHL veteran, for top goalie status in St. John's.
