defense is fixable. Karlsson, Methot, Philly, and Gonchar are capable. Benoit can handle bottom-pairing and 2nd pp duty as well. We have plenty of other futures to trade (noesen/puempel, this years picks, etc), no need to risk our goaltending depth.
I'm not in favour of making any trades with our goaltending right off the hop. If Lehner outplays Andy and Bishop, start him, period. He's been beasting it in the AHL and we should give him the chance to carry it over.

If 15-20 games later it seems he can handle NHL duty, trade Andy or Bishop depending on what makes more sense at the time.
