The key is if the option for next year on Burke is picked up. If Burke is let go (and we wouldn't get a compensation pick I don't beleive on a team option, this is player and team option), we would be handing Niittymaki the backup job, and I think it might be in the best interests if he has to earn it as opposed to being the backup and being expected to perform the way he has with less ice time, and still be so young, and having some pressure put on him.
