Would he have to clear on the way up to the NHL?
Wouldn't it be akin to the Wellwood, Nabokov, etc. situations where they've played in a pro league before signing an NHL deal, or does that only apply to European leagues?
In that case the risk is minimal, but it's still there where we lose Flood (more important for the Moose, obviously) for nothing.
Sauve presents the path of least resistance, and if he just keeps it really simple, he's got the tools (size and mobility being the primary two) to acquit himself well as a stop gap, I would hope.
