I think it will be Burke and Esche in no particular order. Burke and Esche(comparatively) are veterans in the NHL and Burke was brought in especially because of Esche so I don't see Niity breaking that up unless there is an injury.

Niity is in the system and has a bright future, but the team has as much to do with his success as he does. Niity, Esche, and Burke don't score, that is up to the players. Remember that Hackett started the season with a couple of shutouts and had a terrific Oct. and Nov. while the team was playing this good. It's the 18 guys in front of the goaltender who will decide the fate of this team.
