Putting Anderson up on the unprotected list puts even more pressure on Lehner, though. Andy is the only established starter of the trio. Get rid of him, suddenly you're forced to either rush Lehner or overplay Bishop. Get rid of Bishop, you just have to find a decent backup and let Lawson compete with Lehner this year, and then Driedger and Brassard in the future.

Look at Toronto if you want an example of a team that elected to forgo a veteran in favour of two young, unproven goalies.
