Im saying if you want to take a flyer on Helenius, then you need to have another guy who is better than Garon. As an example, get Vokoun for cheap in FA, and then bring Riku over and let them battle it out.

Bringing Riku over also gives you a chance to move Garon if you want/need to to get another guy such as a Schneider or Bernier (to give the other team a solid backup).

The young guys out there that havent played much in the NHL like the two above or Harding or Lindback, dont have massive experience, but they have shown that they can play decently to very well in that little bit of time. Helenius didnt show that in his very very limited chances.

Again I love Riku, but I just cant take another season being lost because of horrible goaltending when it can be prevented in some fashion during the offseason.
