He will go back to the Phantoms because he won't improve being a back up. Esche will be the #1. Niitty will be the FUTURE!
To me, that "mistake" would be expecting too much of him too soon. Yes, he's looked good in three games, but let's be honest, people. He's got a glaring weakness in his game: rebound control.
Does this guy open his catching glove or does he just let the puck hit it while closed? Seems like six or seven times tonight he should have been able to catch the puck and didn't. He's got the reflexes and the positioning, but he's got to get MUCH better at preventing second shots before he's counted on to do anything except get lots of minutes with the Phantoms.
