This is a valid concern, but I'm not comfortable going into next season with Lindback as our #1 again (injury history and inconsistency this year). Are you?

Thomas strikes me as the best alternative in FA as a stop-gap solution, due to the elite level he was at a year ago and his frienship with Marty. We could also look at Backstrom, but I feel as though Minny will re-sign him or that he'll be looking for a slightly longer deal than say Thomas (maybe three years?).
