Hes not any better then Kinkaid. He won on Tampa bc of the team in front of him.

 

Listen - he can't be worse than Cory. And we didn't pay a thing for him. Can't complain I guess!

If I had to guess, insurance for if Cory is "injured" again. 
And not for nothing, but I have no idea why they went into this season with Cormier as third on the depth chart. 

Because they had already spent a bunch of lower picks on other positions and trading another one, even if later in the draft, for an experienced AHL goalie, wasn't exactly top priority. There were rumors they were looking for one early on iirc, but it wasn't a pressing matter.

There were free agents, too. I said several times in the off season that an Eddie Lack level guy (yes I know he's injured) would be decent insurance for an often injured 33 year old and an inexperienced rookie.

I'm not sure an Eddie Lack level guy was a better choice going into the season than giving Senn and Cormier a chance to get some experience. I'm still not. .894 (Senn) and .901 (Cormier) are not disastrous save percentages in the AHL this early into the season and are certainly better than Domingue's .863 in 4 gp. None of those numbers are bad enough to conclude anything yet really. And at least of the current FA goalies, there's no one available that presents a very good option, hence the trade for Domingue, a guy who is better than Lack...probably.
