Blackburn wasn't rushed, he was developing nicely until a freak injury finished his career, leading to the wasted pick in Montoya (which was a panic move).

It would be nice to have a possible starter in the org but I'm not sure it is essential. You look at Dunham and Weekes and think 'this is why you can't half arse it with goalies' but those guys were only meant to be stop gaps. Bernier and Schnieder have shown that if you want to commit to a long term solution the cost isn't massive.
