Exactly this.

There is a lot of hockey left this season, and a few more seasons to go after this one before he is ready to challenge for an NHL roster spot.

Not trying to dismiss what he is doing, but with goaltenders seeming to be such a crap shoot, and only ~60 positions available in the league, I'm not ready to fully hitch my wagon to the Binnington bandwagon.

Certainly someone to keep an eye on going forward however.
