Nothing is 100% certain just yet, however all indications point to Schwarz returning to Europe. That is why the deal for Slade was made. I don't see the Giants trying to acquire an overager goalie just yet. They have been watching and scouting Slade since he started playing with Surrey and I guess they feel confident that he can stay focused and that his past problems are behind him. Let's hope so.
