This move was to allow the team to get some flexibility. It is no secret that the team has been wanting to recall Sulzer from Milwaukee and also has been struggling to get Tarnasky (sadly, our enforcer) and Peverley into the lineup. This move allows both to get into the lineup and puts the pressure on everyone remaining on the NHL roster to shape up or get shipped out.
We now have flexibility with our roster. Jones and Hornqvist will get top minutes in Milwaukee to show if they are ready to take bigger roles in Nashville and gain confidence in their play. Sulzer will probably be recalled with one of those spots and we will see a trade in the next week for at least one of our defensemen and a roster forward if Hornqvist and Jones prove that they have no business playing in Milwaukee.
It is a confusing, head-scratching move...but ultimately one that allows us to keep all of our assets and finally gives Poile some flexibility to tweak the roster.
that's about as analytical as you can get without calling me a dumbass or moron ... bravo, I just thought that Jones deserved more time, but I guess Sulzer
ready, god I sure hope so, because that anchor (Greg the Pylon) on the backend is making us struggle right now
