Two words: ice time. If the AHL "remains stacked with NHLers," like 10 ft. pole said, then Pushkarev would be playing behind Kostopolous, Brown, Barney (if he can get healthy), Smyth, Clarke, and Kanko for the wing positions. It would be better for Pushkarev to be the go-to guy for the Hitmen, with Getzlaf and Ladd gone, than to be playing seven or so minutes per game in Manchester.
