PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Penguins have a goaltending problem.
Arguably a few of them, actually, but one is the most pressing.
They have just one goalie, Casey DeSmith, who has faced a shot in the NHL under contract for the coming season.
Even DeSmith’s most staunch supporters would not argue that he should be the go-to guy for a team that, reasonably or otherwise, envisions itself becoming a Stanley Cup contender in 2023-24.
The obvious answer would be for the Penguins to re-sign Tristan Jarry, who has been their No. 1 since Matt Murray was traded to Ottawa in 2020, but that’s not as simple as it might sound.
