While I agree with your frustration, that is hardly 99% of the teams, and frankly, only a few of those goalies were 'developed' in the sense that you mean. Pittsburgh hardly developed MA Fleury by drafting him 1st overall. Now you could make the argument for Henrik Lundqvist and guys who go that road, but taking a goalie 1st overall is hardly good organizational development, especially when you consider how awful you have to be to earn that right.
