He hasn't been recalled partly because of the probability they would need him to clear waivers again. There are 12 games left in the season. He'd need to be on the team for 10 of them before he'd need to clear again. Two game difference, big whoop.

The 30 days issue is also non existent because there's less than that left in the Lightning season. Today, March 18-April 11.

If the Lightning really see him as a player for them next year, I'd believe they recall him now (tomorrow really) to get him NHL minutes and on the team practice regimen.

Edit: (Unless he qualifies for re-call waivers, then I retract this statement)
They paid him some kind of bonus earlier in the year, so he qualifies for re-entry waivers. That is why we havent seen him.
