So what happens if the stars align and you lose your backup? What if a divisional rival takes your backup, forcing you to play the lesser goaltender? Blame it on bad luck?

A good manager would have the stones to pick a goalie and waive the other
I don't like it but I don't think it is that big of a deal as at this point only teams that are carrying players that don't have to go through waivers can claim Irving and I think the only team that has a goalie they can demote for Irving is Toronto. I hope he doesn't get pick up as I am a big supporter of his and think he won the job today but at the same time Karlsson didn't look bad either and I can understand why they wanted an extra day.
