It's a combination of things. I think he has a higher bust possibility than most of the other prospects in the top echelon. I don't believe his ceiling is as high as others do. I factor NHL-readiness as about 40% of my rankings and he doesn't exactly score highly there. And lastly I don't believe his position is all that important -- even if he does reach his supposed ceiling I'm not sure I'd call him a franchise player. I'm not even convinced a franchise goaltender can exist in today's game outside of maybe 1 or 2 exceptional cases.
