I think a good move on the backup goaltending front would be to sign/invite a bunch of guys from europe.

Stauffer mentionned some guy from Sweden. Niko Hovinen from the farm team and Kruger has some connections in the Swiss league i'm sure we can put to good use.

If you are able to do so, why not invite two or three guys into camp and let them duke it out for a back up spot.

Anaheim was able to dig out some 30 year old from the SEL. I'm sure the Oilers can find a decent back up without having to waste assets on a guy like Bishop or sign a guy for more than he's worth on the UFA market.

I always liked Reto Berra from the few times i got to see him. Not sure what his status is with STL. I'm sure there's a guy out there that's decent enough.The oilers don't need the next Pekka Rinne (although it would be nice ). They just need a guy who can not suck 20 games a year.
