Jeremy Smith, who was one of the best goaltenders in the ECHL last year. But like I said, we're looking at signing a veteran for the NHL (supposedly Jose Theodore) to backup Rinne, which makes the logjam even worse.

I have a gut feeling that Smith will get traded, and if we do sign a veteran goalie, Dekanich will be dealt as well, leaving us with Rinne/Veteran, Pickard/Lindbäck, and then Engren in the ECHL, likely getting higher-level work if injuries mount.

I suppose we could, like you said, send him back to Europe for one more year to try to sort our goaltender situation out, but the organization is pretty high on him and I'm inclined to think they want him here ASAP.
