Thanks for any updates, btw is Lehtonen in the AHL?

Savard posted 3 in the last preseason game and has looked awesome. He's Centering a line with Kozlov and McEarchern. If McEarchern has some juice left that line should score pretty well. I suspect Kovalchuk will see time with Savard this year as the Heatly thing has messed up our lines. We may well see another winger come in as well. Savard was the best deal DW has done to date.
Lehtonen is in the AHL and due to a groin pull only played 1 game this preseason. He stopped (I think) 30 of 32. Some on this board think he's there for the whole year and only will be brought up once the playoffs have been decided. Personally I think he's got a chance to play in Atlanta a little sooner. If he plays well I wouldn't be surprised to see some goalie shuffling.
