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.
