You're trying to compare guys that have spend time in the NHL and played dozens of games to a 24-year-old minor-leaguer who has never seen a single minute of NHL ice. That is a pretty big point, actually.
It's really not. Teams take the information they have and use that to project the player they could become. That's why a player like Jarnkrok or Silfverberg has value, despite not playing in the NHL yet.

The whole point is that Lack being unproven means he'd cost significantly less than an established goalie, while still having that potential.
