Hellberg needs the starting role in Milwaukee prior to being brought up and Smith is not going to be content to sit behind him. Mazanek will split the Milwaukee net with Hellberg and develop there with the hope that he will be ready to take over the Admirals net in 2014-15 when Hellberg makes the leap to the NHL.
Why can't he back up Pekka next year? I know every case is different, but Lindback was just fine. If he is good enough, and we are eating through his ELC, why not?
