Seems like that's the idea. I think it's also good in that Prucha doesn't feel "picked on", instead knows that he's mired in a competition.

Renney did also say that he intended to utilize all these players during this tightly scheduled stretch. Whether it's intended to be an "audition period", or a way of keeping the bottom half of the roster fresh, I'm not sure. I don't see the harm in platooning guys that can't stake a claim to their spot over a 2 game stretch, nor do I see the harm in having players in reserve and ready to go for injuries that the team will inevitably face. Better than having to rely on a forward from Hartford that hasn't been playing with the team or a guy who's been glued to the bench for a month.
