As previously stated, when Lehner plays better and makes himself the better of three options then he'll see some time, but he's clearly not earned any call-up time as it stands.
Terrible? really? I don't think that is the word for Lehner in the AHL. The AHL means crap. Lehner is a great goalie and has shown that in the NHL. He is going to be called up to back-up before we would even consider a trade.
He was the best playoff performer in the entire AHL last season... he doesn't have a ton more to prove... he just needs to play whereever.
