“The evaluation for [Niittymaki], quite frankly, is in case he does have to play playoff games. We’re not sure on Esche yet. We have a lot of games in a row, every second night, and we’re seeing if he can handle the grind. So far, so good.”
What, winning the Calder Cup MVP--in the most talent laden AHL season ever, no less--wasn't enough? Going 7-1-1 so far on the road trip wasn't enough? At this rate he won't make the grind in the playoffs because you'll tire him out. Seems foolish to me to see if he won't run into the ground in the playoffs by running him into the ground in the regular season. Just watch, Esche will get hurt after one game and Frank will have to play a month straight.
Give the guy the night off, he's earned it.
