I guess Seitz wasn't getting groomed to be the eventual starter after all.
Pretty much this. Goalies are a dime in a dozen type of position and it's a waste on the cap space for getting a foreign goalie at that position. Much smarter on spending that money on a forward that Dallas needs and try out a youngster at Goalie or have a GK by committee type of thing. Red Bulls in 2011 signed a DP goalie and it didn't work but the next year we were solid in the net with a unknown rookie in the net(Meara) who done a great job before getting hurt and Robles stepped in fine as well.
