That's not a best case scenario. If you're going to throw fairy tales around then the best case scenario is that he wins 10 straight Vezinas and Conn Smythes. Best case scenarios to have meaning must be realistic.
The best case scenario is competent backup. That's it. Labarbera has demonstrated that through a long career. There's no upside greater than that.
Whereas the upside of some other goaltending options - realistic upside, not fairy tales - was true starting goaltender who could push Dubnyk and turn one of our 2 guys into a value asset.
