He is by far the best of the three goalies.
in no regard does it ruin "the plan", and moreover, if a plan is not malleable, it is not a plan.
Goaltending at this level is all about consistency. He hasn't proven he is able to play at a high level consistently. While this is in fact due to circumstance, it is still an issue. I have no doubt that if he dominates the AHL for an extended period of time, he will be brought back to the NHL.

His time in the NHL at this point would be split with Theodore. He will be the clear #1 in the AHL and will get plenty of time to prove himself further.
