Additionally, when goalie's like Fasth, Hiller, Thomas, and Rinne continually pop up in the 5th round or signed from overseas, I don't see a real incentive to trade a valuable asset like Henrique for another team's backup goaltender.
Having 1.53 gaa and .933 save%, is not bad on a team with just 4 wins above .500 is pretty good. And while it is true you can draft a good goaltender in the latter rounds, the chances are slim. By your way of thinking every team would have like 5 starting goaltenders because they can be drafted from the third round and back. and the btw, 2 of the 4 goaltenders you mentioned were beat with Bernier in net this week.
