As for Antero, I don't think he's going anywhere. Let Esche get his playoff shot, and if Niittymaki is ready to go next year let him get a chance.
Well clearly he is not going to be traded, since he is basically our only goalie prospect with a shot at the NHL (I guess besides Malek). And why not go into the playoffs with him as a backup? He won two championships in the Finnish league. If Esche gets his shot, we really only need one goalie unless Esche stinks which I pretty highly doubt. I just dont get the point of trading so much for a back up, when the backup we have has a ton of potential and has been doing fine.
