Are there any other goalies that can be picked up from the SEL or in Europe for that matter? I've heard Sebastian Idoff before as a possibility.

Ericsson would've been perfect on a 2 yr ELC. His first season, he spends the year in the AHL while Biron and Hank share NHL duties. By year 2 of his ELC, Biron is most likely moved and he takes the backup spot.

Also look at the Bruins continuing to sign/trade for G prospects when they had Thomas/Rask tandem. They signed Niklas Svedberg, who was the best AHL goalie this year. They also traded for Anton Khudobin for AHL depth a year ago. B's also drafted Hutchinson, who is also a solid tender prospect in 2008.

The Rangers don't pursue high end G prospects for some reason. Henrik alone can't be used as an excuse when teams with bigger depth at G are signing these guys.
You do realize that Thomas is not in Boston anymore right? I get exactly what you mean, though. After Rask and Khudobin, the Bruins have solid goaltending. Svedberg is a diamond in the rough.

JC Lipon is a solid choice, but I would much rather choose Bell.
