Goalies take longer to develop then skaters. 4 years before they're NHL ready is't a stretch. Further playing a year or two as a backup in the NHL afterwards wouldn't be bad either. Tuuka Rask is a prime example of this. 6 years from now, Henke is 37 and there is no legit goalie prospect in the organization. They're essentially walking themselves into a situation where they're going to have to make a deal for a goalie prospect.

Last time the Rangers ended up with a goalie shortage they traded two solid blueline prospects and a player for a mediocre goalie in Dunham who was really a backup pretending to be a starter.
