I think he'd be a great pickup. He pushes a more technical style over reactive athletic style for sure, but I think that would help round out Greiss and Niemi's game. He cited a lack ice time and influence in Toronto as his reason for leaving, he wasn't getting enough time with the goalies and they were being handled by too many others and he felt he couldn't do his job properly. San Jose also doesn't have a full time goaltending coach anymore (IIRC splitting time between SJ and Worcester), which I think is a huge mistake.
