Which is what people said about Boucher, Pelletier and Ouellet.

Simply put, there is no way to say with such confidence that a 18 year old goalie will be "well worth the wait". Sure he could turn out to be the team's goalie of the future, but the odds are that he will be the next Boucher, Pelletier or Ouellet.

Not to mention that I have absolutely no faith that this team will ever draft and then develop a goaltender properly.
Oh! So he's a bust because a couple goaltenders drafted 15 years ago busted. Gotcha.

Also: we develop him by letting London develop him.
