I'm just so confused.
They had aspirations this past offseason to land Nash via trade and they needed some bait and/or insurance (Lehner/Bishop) to make it happen. Plus beyond Lehner, the cupboard was pretty bare as far as goalie prospects were concerned. Andy won't be around forever and they will need someone to push Lehner. That's probably why they picked up 2 more goalies this past draft. From a depth standpoint, it was a position of weakness within the organization.
