Personally I think he stays until the off season.

Would he be any worse than the current guy you have? Also, wouldnt it be better to get a goalie who has played on a winner and knows what it takes to be a winner, and already has that work ethic?

How do you upgrade your current G situation if you dont want to trade for an unproven or a proven goalie?
As punk said, he's unproven because he has 50 starts in the NHL and never more than 25 in a season. And, as Bugg pointed out, I don't object to trading for Schnieder, only to giving up Johansen for him. Sure, I'd like to have a winner with a strong work ethic in goal; but I really have no idea if he'd be better than Mason on this team. Well, that's not true, I'm fairly sure he couldn't be worse, but that's not enough to inspire such a trade for me. Others, I'm sure, will differ.
