The worry i'd have with taking a backup goalie on waivers is it uses up your priority waiver claim. When you have 2nd priority you want to try and get the best asset avaliable. In saying that Tambo hasn't been too great at using it to his advantage. The one time he did well was with Jones, and i feel confident in saying a guy like that would be much more helpful than Irving. In saying that i could think of worse things to do with that waiver pick and we certainly need a backup, i just wonder if the "Irvings" of the world aren't too tough to acquire even without waivers.
