the thing is that blackburn is probably not going to be able to jump into the NHL after almost two years off with a serious injury, and waiver rules require that he has to pass through waivers next year to play in hartford. He's gonna have to get back up to speed in half a season in the AHL if we're going to take him on next year as a backup on the big club, no easy task considering all he's been through (and that he wasn't quite ready for the NHL two years ago.)
