Not for a goalie it shouldn't. We do see how Fleury, a #1 pick evolved over the years....same for DiPietro and most of the goalies anyway. A #5 pick is expected to be a great player in the long run but especially if he's a goalie. Any other top 5 pick might be expected to start in the lineup as soon as the year after and make an impact either the same year of the year after.....but then it also depends of the quality of the draft.
