Gerber takes Emery's job again and what the hell is Garth Snow thinking?

Emery is out and Gerber is in, this time in the KHL with Atlant Mytishchi. Is it just a bit surprising that Andrew Raycroft has a job in the NHL, but not one NHL team could even offer Gerber a back-up gig? Maybe a few teams did, and Gerber refused, or perhaps he wants meatier paycheques, but I think Gerber is more capable than a few back-ups and 1A tenders who are employed in the NHL.

While we're talking goaltenders, anybody else find it strange that the Islanders now have Dipietro, Biron and Roloson all signed for a grand total of $8.4M in salary next season? That's the highest paid goaltending position in the NHL! Obviously Dipietro has had injury troubles to put it lightly, but by all accounts he'll be ready for camp. One would think that Snow could have waited to see if he holds up before finding a serviceable back-up to Roloson if called upon? I sometimes wonder if Snow uses rock, paper, scissors to make management decisions.
