Never noticed this post before.
I think you'll keep both guys until at least the NHL trade deadline. There's two ways Dallas can approach the backup goalie situation.
1) They can decided that they need 3 goalies because of a condensed 48 games schedule, and gamble on losing Bachman or Nilstorp for nothing in the summer.
2) They can move one closer to the trade deadline for probably an underwhelming return.
If Lehtonen is still healthy at the deadline, I think they gamble and move a goalie.
As I type this though I remember the trade deadline is in April. Don't the ECHL playoffs start by then or soon after?
