Three options for backup: Niitty, a young prospect a la Harding, or wily vet like Legace.

This is really the least of our worries now, Backlund could be forced into duty if necessary. A lot will depend on the cap.
Your options as follows.

1) A guy who has proven incapable of "carrying the load."

2) Unproven.

3) Did you see what happened in St Louis?

Does it seem like a primary concern in June? No, probably not. However, if Emery doesn't work out and you don't have a backup that can actually play the season is effectively OVER.
