Didn't Domingue sign a 2 year deal? Guy was pretty much out of the league a few years ago. I'm sure he'd love to piggyback his wins from last year into a shot in the NHL (Guy is like 26, I get it). But as others have said, he's not bringing a huge return (I mean, even with his win total, his stats weren't that good, and look at the returns other goalies bring back). And why would you wait until next season to need to find another backup if you have the opportunity now? Even if the return is very little, that will be more than you get next year.
