Labarbera has been a competent backup (plus a brief stint as a starter) for a little over half his career. Why is that a best case now?

fwiw A true starting goalie wouldn't merely push Dubnyk, he would win the job easily.

With Labarbera's signing another goalie could be coming here, best case ... not very likely.
