Although that is just a guess, ya never know.
Goalies always take longer to develop. A 23 year old goalie is like a 21 year old Forward or a 22 year old Defenseman.

I would never trade a Hobey Finalist for a #5 unless there was something structurally wrong with him where I couldn't foresee him making the NHL.
