Why in the world would we want to trade York? He did well by us when we were on national TV, he's still developing, and we still don't know if we have a quality starting goaltender. His NHL stats look good so far, but if he really was that good we'd already be penciling him in as the NHL backup instead of the AHL backup. He needs time, and we intend to give him that. Right now he's AHL fodder (with or without the lockout) while most of our other youngsters are in Europe or the CHL - so there's time available for him to play (he hasn't so far, mostly because he's been injured).

There's absolutely no point in trading him.
