The way I see it, he comes over and sticks or he goes home. If he goes home, we don't have him, just like we don't if we never sign him to a contract. If we sign him AT LEAST we have a chance at having one of our better prospects play for our team.
I agree in principle since it seems we'll have something rather than nothing. But the guy's really just hurting himself by skipping over the AHL. Streit looked terrible when he first landed with us, not being used to the style and pace of the NA game. I guess I don't see the harm, other than to him, in giving him his request.
