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?
Yep. But as long as we keep one it will be fine. We've been the victim twice of losing the only good one late in the playoffs to a call up. The numbers are pretty identical so I don't care which one stays or goes, just not both. But with the top 2 lines getting gutted this week it might not matter now much anyway. Tristan King is the best forward now so that doesn't excite me much.
