After spending last season in Germany after failing to win a job with the New York Islanders out of training camp, Legace is getting another chance to try and crack through with an NHL team. While it’s great news for Legace that he’s getting a tryout, the unfortunate part comes with which team he’s getting a shot with: Vancouver.
Probably just to make sure Luongo gets an extended rest in the pre-season after the run. Split games between Legace and Lack and then one to Lu and one to Schneids or something.
Gives the guy a favor too, if he plays well behind a solid defense, he could maybe get a shot as a third stringer somewhere else. In case Schneider does get traded later on the year too, he could be the veteran backup that Gillis would then need to find, and this could be a way to introduce him to the system. Sign at league minimum (if he does well enough), loan to Europe until a Schneider trade comes along?
