1. Luoma moves the puck well too, from what I've read.
2. Luoma is bigger, does he use it effectively I don't know, but bigger never hurts on D.
3. Depth. If you keep Luoma, and someone ahead of him on the depth chart goes down to injury (as will almost certainly happen at some point in the season), you can always recall Bergeron. If you keep Bergeron and send Luoma back to Europe, all of a sudden you are calling up the Allen's and Lynch's, though it looks like Luoma is CLEARLY ahead of those guys right now.
The only place that I have read the Luoma is on a return to Europe contract is on this board, does anyone have some confirmation on this?
I read in one of the dailies he is on a one-way but they didn't mention anything about him returning to Europe?
