We have our backup

And guess what!  He's a former Leaf.  It's Andrew Raycroft.  We do love their garbage.    

I'm thinking this is a clear step down from Barby, who played well for us in his limited role last year.  I guess Barbs just wanted too much money, or he wanted assurances of more starts.  Because I have no confidence is this new guy, and I'm thinking this signing says two things.  One, the talk about giving Lu less starts this year is hogwash.   Lu will be in for 70 games minimum barring injury (oh please god no!).  Two, this solidifies that Schneids will be dealt.  The only theory under which he could have been kept would be as a backup role that gets real minutes in order to rest Lu (say 20-25 starts) and also to showcase his NHL abilities to up his value.  The question is when does the deal happen.  I'm hoping soon so we get more stuff to talk about.
