If you had the mistaken belief that Scott Wedgewood can play in the NHL and not be an embarrassment, you would do this.
You're right. Didn't think about the possibility of injury. I would really like for us to sign Appleby. It would be a solid signing, and boost our goalie pool towards the top of the league, in my opinion. I guess he could play in ECHL if we sign him, or best case scenario, he takes the Albany job and Wedgewood would be an ECHL starter, where he belongs.
Wouldn't be bad to have Kinkaid, Blackwood, and Appleby all behind Schneider. With seeing the hauls commanded for backups with starter potential like Jones, Lehner and Talbot, it's not an awful idea to keep some assets in the pipeline.
