They wouldn't have put faith in him being the backup goalie at this level if they didn't think he could play at it. I'd give management credit for not keeping him in the minors when they could have easily opted to sign a veteran backup.
Your first sentence is exactly why they are lucky. Goalies are very hard to predict. It is pretty uncommon to have 2 goalies like schnieder and lack turn out back to back like them
If the reason was souly due to good scouting then they'd have a lot better players developed internally and less Schroeder's and Rodin's.
