Even if the Phantoms suck and our prospects aren't lighting the world on fire there has to be one or two that can handle the puck better than a fringe 4th line/AHL call up like Powe.
So if Legin is so great why isn't he up here? Powe isn't going to light the world on fire offensively but it's not like Legin would be to this season what Giroux was at the end of last year. Even at his best Legin won't be a great goal scorer. With that said, I'm not opposed to a callup for the sake of fresh blood. But as far as I'm concerned it would just be the shakeup part of it that would be a benifit, there will be no substantial upgrade of offense from any of the guys on the Phantoms. We really don't have any breakout star waiting to get his chance right now. I actually think if anyone gets the call it would be between Pyro and Laliberte, both of whom could be useful but not game changers.
