Ahonen has actually established himself as one of the better goalies around in the KHL.

I'm pretty sure the only reason we drafted him was because Marty was an impending UFA and there was a legitimate chance we needed a goalie for the future. So we drafted Ahonen. When Marty re-signed, there was no chance Ahonen would get any games. And since he wanted the chance to be a starter, we decided let him go. It wasn't so much about talent.

He has a 1.65 GAA and .944 SV% for Magnitigorsk of the KHL right now through 10 games.

He had a 2.16 GAA and .929 SV% in 28 games last year (they have a 54 game season there).
