Which available goalie do you think is the best viable option for the Bolts?

With pretty much every goalie who is RFA, UFA, Trading Block all rumoured to be tied to Tampa, who do you think is the best viable option? Take into consideration cap and contract for UFA's, and what needs to be traded for RFA and Trading Block options. List them below.

Me personally the most viable option would be Harding or Vokoun.

Harding UFA offered 2 years/2.8-3.25 million a year. If he doesn't work out we aren't tied to him too long, and he gets a shot to prove #1. With Lou now rumoured to want out and other options, he might slip under the radar with a cheap price if everyone is looking at Vancouver.

Vokoun would be a stop gap until the end of next season. 1 year/3 million. If he is willing to take a contract like he did in Washington, I am willing to go with a Garon/Vokoun tandem next season.

Both also give Tik/Janus a couple of more seasons to see if they are NHL ready. Pretty much any long-term goalie we get would knock out any chance they have to become our number one.
