I've never felt the need to blind bake puff pastry when I use it for pot pie, and it's been fine. I totally understand the worry about sogginess, but pot pie ingredients are pretty 'wet', so any crispness/flakiness would disappear, thus it'd be just an extra step. That said, I recommend not putting the filling into the dish until right before putting it in the (fully preheated) oven. That way the pastry will heat up fast and not allow too much liquid in. Hope this helps!
