This is by no means a method of making us win NHL games now, but because like I said, Leino isn't doing anything for the team anyways, I don't think it really affects the outcome if we will win the game or not, but it does possibly give some valuable experience to our kids for those 2-3 games.
Mursak and Tatar aren't physically ready to handle first line AHL minutes let alone 3rd/4th line NHL minutes. They would get destroyed out their.

... because, well, they're pretty much developed out.

No need to even worry about "impact" at this point.
Well said. A few of those guys wouldn't get the call (Oulahen because he is injured, Rissmiller is Rangers property, Emmerton isn't quite ready yet) and I would add Ritola to that list, but you got the right idea.
