Niittymaki proving himself in the clutch
 
This guy to me is proving he is the real deal. He shut the door in his first clutch game where if they lose the phantoms are out. He stopped 31 0f 33 shots, thats pretty large. I felt bad for him after his first 2 starts in philly where he played stellar then went down to the phantoms he got slammed for 6 goals if i recall correctly. But the man came back tp beat the Devils the next game. To me that shows game man. Its hard not to get excited about our depth with our goaqltending Esche is only 26 we have another guy accross seas in Malek and a probable Memorial Cup winner in Tremblay. I think its a fair statement when i say that we have never been stronger in this area. It makes our prospects of 4 years ago laughable when we had Boucher, Pelletier and Ouellett.

I also thought that Carter, who is coming into his first professional series in the middle of the playoffs never playing against these teams and most of the players before is doing well.

good to hear. I like Niitymaki and elt bad for him after his great stint with the Flyers...getting sent down. Of course, it has paid off fine with Esche's play.

Anyway...go Niitymaki.

the only bad game he had was game 1 when he gave up 5. other then that he lost with no goal support. and in the 2-0 game 1 was a ENG i believe.

not to mention that the phantoms D has absolutely blown all playoffs.

Marty Murray we picked up as a free agent from Calgary to be on the Phantoms.

I think within two years of Antero making the Flyers, he'll be our number one guy

Well, he'll be called up and will be traveling with the team now, since the Phantoms are done. Randy Jones, Dennis Seidenberg, Peter White, come on down...

White's play has really declined this year.

I think they'll bring up Niittymaki, Jones, Seidenberg, Slaney, Carter and Law.

I sure hope so.....get the kids some experience being around a team in the ECF. It should be invaluable.
