We don't really have any other choice, do we? He's a solid goalie and deserves a chance to show what he can do behind a well-rounded defense.
I was talking about this with DUHockey9 earlier. I think this is our best bet if Emery continues to struggle. Biron is streaky, but he's an above-average goaltender and we know he's capable of catching fire in the playoffs. I always thought he was unfairly scapegoated last year, and I would welcome him back.

Besides, with Dipietro getting ready to come back and Rolosson on their roster, Biron is pretty unnecessary on the Island and we should be able to get him cheap. Mid-level prospect or a pick should get him (not that I want to trade any of our too-few picks).

Would we have the cap space, though, after Gagne comes back?
