The signing of goaltender Riku Helenius to a two-year contract might not serve as the answer to fill the Tampa Bay Lightning’s need for a bona fide starting goaltender, but it does perhaps bring the team one step closer to doing just that.

That’s because the addition of Helenius gives Tampa Bay some added depth within its farm system, not to mention extra leverage to get a deal in the works with the goal of attaining a more permanent solution in net.
