Biron has been a victim of a lack of goal support and sporadic play. Especially for a #1 that has to hurt quite a bit. No clue why, but the Isles light up the scoreboard for Rolo, and put nothing up for Biron.

That being said, he could help the team, but why roll the dice before Lehtonen returns? Let's say Pavs puts together a few good starts, and Hedberg is still playing well when Kari returns. Then if Kari looks decent, we have WAY too much goaltending.

At this point riding it out till Kari returns is the only option IMO.
