Diiiiiiidn't expect the Penguins to sign Gustavsson quite so soon. I thought he'd have stuck around in Sweden for at least another year, and he could be loaned back to the SHL so that his contract slides. Not entirely sure where he lands in the depth chart, otherwise. With Marc-André Fleury's presumptive departure, the depth chart basically looks like:
- Matt Murray
- Tristan Jarry
- Casey DeSmith (AHL contract)
- Sean Maguire
Murray's the obvious NHL starter. Maguire will likely be the starter in the ECHL, and DeSmith will be one of the goalies at the AHL level, which leaves a question mark as to where Jarry is expected to play. If the Penguins are going to attempt a Murray/Jarry tandem next season, there's a place for Gustavsson, but Jarry's only had one season of success in the AHL so far, and it seems a bit early to try and push him into a backup role in the NHL.
