Patrick Lalime's struggles as the backup goaltender for Ryan Miller are well documented and Lindy's refusal to play him is well warranted. The Lightning waived Mike Smith, I know that he has struggled being the main man in Tampa Bay, but he was a very solid backup in his time spent in Dallas behind Marty Turco and I think a change in scenario would help him get out of his funk in Tampa Bay and help lessen the burden on Millsie.
Should we claim Mike Smith and waive Patrick Lalime?
