A backup goalie is easy enough to find.

If Burke didn't believe in his ability to be a long term starter in this league, he wouldn't have gone into last year with a tandem of Reimer/Gustavsson.

Fixed. In fact, I wouldn't be completely surprised if Gillis were able to get all 3.

I'd prefer Lupul to Kulrmin anyways, as we need some pure offense added in our top-6, as our bottom-6 is fairly set, with the exception of a 3C.

Although I wouldn't mind starting the season with Malhotra there to see if he's able to handle it; if not try Schroeder out, otherwise aquire one at the deadline.
The thing is... you just can't get Lupul. He's not in a position to be traded at the present time, and the season is going to be too short in terms of time before deadline for him to fall out of favour.
