Do you send him all the way to Gwinett? i think that's the answer....Keeps him in atlanta so brass can keep an eye on him, plus playing against ECHL level talent helps Kari's fragile ego get prepared once again.

However...If you;re Atlanta and you're in a playoff run....Do you risk bringing Kari back?
Not sure what should happen with Kari, but if he comes back and the team is in the thick of the playoff hunt, then I wouldn't play him. If the team is in that position, then that means Pavelec is getting the job done, or at the very least, the team has somebody getting it done in net. Cold goaltender down the stretch while sitting the guy who got you there just doesn't seem like a great plan to me.
