I also had Rayner ranked as being the end of a "tier" of sorts. He was the last of the guys who I think could pass as a starter (albeit a very low-end one). His small playoff resume hurts him a bit, but there wasn't much he could do about. And it's not a huge issue as a backup anyways. He'll probably just be expected to play 20 regular season games and then ride the pine in the playoffs behind Hasek, which he's very capable of doing.
Rayner can also fill in if Hasek has a mysterious injury in the playoffs.
