I think it needs to be either Halak, Miller or hopefully Thomas if we want some consistency in net.

Thomas may not be consistent with his time off, he's more of a risk, but he could end up being the best of anything available. At worst I expect him to be around the level of any of those backups, and as long as the deal is short that isn't a terrible risk. Most importantly, he wouldn't cost anything like Halak and Miller would.
I'm just saying if people are throwing Khudobin's name around, Greiss's name should be in there too. Comparable age and stats. Greiss would probably be cheaper I would imagine.
