2-They don't feel P/N are ready they re-sign Nabby or sign one of the manybetter UFA goalies on a 1-2 year band aid to hold over until the kids are ready.

3-Armageddon. DP feels good after backing up all year and he goes into the season as the number one goalie with one of P/N backing him up.

UFA Goalies:
Backstrom, Niklas
Thomas, Tim
Khabibulin, Nikolai
Nabokov, Evgeni
Howard, Jimmy Smith, Mike
Theodore, Jose
Mason, Chris
Garon, Mathieu
Labarbera, Jason
Emery, Ray
Budaj, Peter
Fasth, Viktor
Nihlstorp, Christopher
Boucher, Brian
Leighton, Michael
Khudobin, Anton
Karlsson, Henrik
Ellis, Dan
Danis, Yann
McElhinney, Curtis
Drouin-Deslauriers, Jeff
Montoya, Al
I can't believe Jimmy Howard is an UFA, that would be a no brainer to pick him up.
