Expect Huet to be our #1 going into playoffs and if he shows sign of struggle , Niemi will go in (Like Carolina in 2006 with Gerber/Ward)

Niemi will most likely be our #1 next year. Huet I expect to be bought out (I am in minority) or traded with assets.

Would the Thrasher take Huet's contract if you could get a good prospect (Aliu or Sweatt) + a 1st?

Pavelec is still probably a yr or 2 away from being a full time #1 and Hedberg isn't getting any younger
I dont think that would be a bad deal for them.
