While that's true, there's a lot going into that. It doesn't mean Hackett is the better AHL goalie right now, as Leggio is putting up a MVP-worthy season. Hackett would get the call-up nod because:

A. It doesn't disrupt the Amerks as much as calling up Leggio would
B. He has played (very well at times) in the NHL
C. Unlike Leggio, the organization views him as an NHL prospect, so they'd prefer he get the NHL opportunities for his development, as well as to evaluate him and get him familiarized with the team.
