Some prospects just don't develop into NHL players--especially ones that are not consistant. Any player who has played hockey professionally has their moments. If they can't do it consistantly, there really isn't room for them. It's now more than 10 years since Valquette was drafted. He's not going to get any better and he's not suddenly develop into an NHL goalie, backup or otherwise. He's a place filler, nothing more.
