Wouldn't be surprised to see Fletcher swing a few times over the next 1.5 years to land a #1 Dman for when our young forwards start making an impact. Suter this summer. Weber maybe by trade or when he hits UFA. Maybe Whitney or Edler or somebody else I can't think of in the summer of 2013.

In his intereview with Russo, he pointed out the Campbell signing in Chicago, when everybody thought that signing was too earlier, and Fletcher was 100% right in his assessment. Sign UFA before you peak, and they'll grow with the team.

The UFA signings that teams regret are ones where the team core passed their peak and start to decline, or where teams sign a guy and then expect him to fill a larger role than what he actually can do.
