This is why, like it or not, Gainey has to choose between the two goalies before July 1st.
Why in the blue hell do you (and others) get that Halak will bolt to the KHL?

First of all, he's not even from Russia. He's a Slovak.

Secondly, he came over here IN JUNIORS to play hockey because he wanted to play in the NHL. He's good enough to be a starter in this league. He's not going to leave after backing up and playing in the AHL for 4 or 5 years. He knows it's just a matter of time.
