I think it would be the complete opposite actually. Bringing in a veteran like Kiprusoff takes all the pressure off of Reimer, because Kipper is far and away the starter between the two. Reimer can be inserted into low pressure games and would watch a seasoned veteran deal with high pressure playoff games. Not that I'm advocating trading for Kiprusoff because Calgary will want a kings's ransom, but I do hope Nonis at least picks up a short term veteran goalie as an insurance policy for the playoff run/playoffs.
