Louis just did and buy low on some talented goalie or sign UFA (as goalies were very cheap there)?
Turco is UFA making $600K and Rask is RFA.
Do you think trading away Brian Elliot for UFA to be Craig Anderson (and then re-signing him) was buying low?

Goalies are an interesting breed. Elliot and Holtby and Schneider, and Varlamov/Giguere, Smith, Roloson, Khabibulan etc etc are examples of how unpredictable goaltending is.
