Either way, I think another year in juniors is the best option, but I agree with letting him see some NHL action... partly for selfish reasons. I wanna see the kid play.
I'm pretty sure that he would either have to sit or go back to junior (no AHL) and it would be Bergeron's choice. At least that is how it worked last lockout for players in the same situation.
Not that I saw the game, but an overtime winner against Montreal is a nice debut even if it is pre-season.
