Josefson released to play for Sweden in the WJCs?
 
Josefson (last seen in the NHL) suffered an injury that should see him return around Christmas time.

Obviously, the Devils will send him to Albany to recover/rediscover his game as he has been out for weeks already.

Would it not make sense to send him to the WJC's for a few weeks first, instead of sending him straight to the AHL? It isn't like he won't be in North America still --it is a great chance to pump up his confidence and get his game back, no?

The Bruins are considering sending Tyler Seguin down for the WJC's and he is full-time right now --why not Josefson?

Why send a recovering player into an uncontrolled environment where risk of re-injury is far greater than the ulterior, controlled environment?

And I don't see how you think its "obvious" he will spend time in the AHL. He might do a quick conditioning sprint, but we can use him in the NHL as soon as possible.

Isn't Josefson a regular top12 forward on the Devils? He just couldn't start the season up there because of the cap issues before some injuries occured.

He would center the 3rd line and is desperately needed back IMO.

Well by "3rd" line I mean Kovalchuk - Josefson- Zubrus

What ever is best for his development. Sending Bergfors to the WJC seemed to trigger a stall to his development for a year and a half.
