Can't really say any goaltender will be, "at worst", anything in the NHL. There's potential in Simpson, and that's all you can really say about any goaltending prospects.. even the most highly touted ones; Gibson, Lehner, Vasilevski, etc. aren't locks to be anything in the NHL. Lack of spots, ups-and-downs in confidence, the structure of a team.. lots of things go into what most would deem a good or elite goaltender.

Crawford was considered by many at this time last year, as a borderline NHL starter, and probably a back-up, "at best". Now, he's talked about in the top-15 of goaltenders in the NHL and could be on the Canadian Olympic team.
