Well, I just had a thought. I don't know if this possible under the CBA, but maybe the Wild sent down Wallin, Wanvig, etc. because they want to give Darby, Dowd, etc. a realistic chance of making the team. Get them in a few consecutive games and let them show whether they can still help the team. If they can't, maybe we cut them just before the season and re-call Wallin. (I thought Wallin played great in the game I saw). I don't know whether the young guys need to stay in Houston for x number of games or days before a recall.

I don't think the above is what's going on. But it also wouldn't surprise me. Everybody knows how Lemaire is with his loyalty. Maybe he wants to give the vets one more chance with some extra ice-time. Just a thought.
