Speculation/generalization/what I'm trying to say:

Imagining you are a young top prospect goalie in a team with a goalie like Lundqvist, Quick, Rask etc. Having a top career in both your home country and AHL behind you.

You are fully aware of that best case, most likely, you will become a backup goalie, looking 10 years ahead.

How would that feel? Perhaps not the career you were dreaming of, not being able to show your potential?

Craig Anderson is looking really, really good and stable, he has matured.
If all goes to plan Lehner will back up Anderson for two years before assuming the starter's role when Andy's conract is up. Lehner still has plenty of developing to do still.
