The NHL's Goalie Dilemma

Earlier this morning the Columbus Blue Jackets sent Antoine Vermette to the Phoenix Coyotes for a 2nd round pick in the 2012 NHL Draft, a 5th round selection in the 2013 Draft and goalie, Curtis McElhinney.  As the struggling Blue Jackets attempt to fight their way out of last place, I doubt you will see much of a change this season but it looks like preparation for next year.
