Enroth looked every bit like a #1 goalie in the WHCs this offseason, I have to imagine Swedish teams made overtures to him about coming back and taking the #1 job, so for him to re-sign in Buffalo, I'd imagine promises were made about a greatly-increased schedule.
I agree with your assessment. I think they will roll a 1a/1b situation with Enroth and Hackett. As a Sabres fans I am ok with that and think it is the right move.
As to the proposed trade: Assuming the above assessment is indeed correct, they would not be looking to take back a goalie (Halak).
