Perhaps, at some point in the future, he will actually reach the potential we believe he has...or perhaps he never will....only time will answer that question...
While I certainly don't disagree with your point, it is still time to rectify the situation. It's not too late to get him a more suitable goalie coach who will work in bringing him back to his natural style, the hybrid. It's not too late to move him with a solid veteran to teach him the off-ice ways to be a professional hockey player, and it's certainly not too late to get him a veteran back up to teach him the shooters and the preparation for a game at this level.

If we don't do that, we will look back and still question if it was a mistake to pick him.
