Poile said that Rinne is expected to miss only a month. He then mentioned that that was only 10 games, so signing another goalie doesn't make sense
(my emphasis). These comments were predicated on Rinne's best case recovery scenario.
If 2-3 weeks down the road, the antibiotics aren't taking care of the infection, AND Hutton/Hellberg aren't stepping up, I suspect Poile will sign another goalie. But for the next 2 weeks, I don't expect any moves.
In hindsight, Poile probably should've signed an experienced backup on a 1 year contract given Pekka was coming off a fairly invasive procedure. I suppose he can still do so. Is Bryz or Theodore consistent enough to carry the Preds into the playoffs?? Are there others available that could do the same?
