Rear deraileur size

I broke the Deore LX rear Deraileur on my Trek 6700 this Saturday. I am presently running 42 32 22 and 11-32 cassette. I am going to upgrade to XT and was wondering if the medium cage GS might not be a better choice than the long SGS. I am not planning on running anything bigger than 32 in the rear so according to the Shimano website I should be able to use the GS. Any experience with this?

My LBS wants $86 for the XT, I can find the same deraileur for $38 online. What is the deal with these price differences? It looks like the LBSs are realy getting hosed on what they pay for these parts to have to charge that much.:confused:
