Having two good goalies is not a problem if both feel comfortable with the situation.
As long as Craig continues to play like a top 5 goalie he will be number 1, that's for sure.
Like the Thomas/Rask tandem.
Absolutely. I see Bishop being traded by season's end (or maybe just switching spots with Lehner; that's an option) and Lehner taking the backup job for two years, maybe alternating starts late in year two. Two years ago, I wouldn't have been sure both goalies would be okay with it, but Lehner's come far in his maturity. I think he could handle it.
