Teams do this all the time. You never really know what a goalie is capable of until you see them put a long string of NHL starts together.

Sometimes you get Bryzgalov, sometimes you get Roman Turek. This is more than the established price for a backup that you're hoping will be your starter - historically those guys have brought single 2nd round picks. But in this case, Tampa has such a huge hole in net and they have some extra picks from the deadline, so they have more flexibility than most teams.
