In Vancouver's case it took 6 years for Schneider to develop as a starting goalie. Had he not been playing behind a top notch vet like Luongo I question whether he would have survived if thrown in as a starter early in his career. Having an established vet gives you a way better chance of having a goalie prospect develop into a good starter. There are of course exceptions like Price and Quick but these guys are rare.
