Trying to compare Blindenbacher and Vincour in terms of call ups is ludicrous since they play different positions. The Stars have called up relatively few D this year while the forwards basically all went down at the same time and they needed a bunch of guys to fill in.

Other than the Great Warm Up Collision, the Stars' defensemen have been generally healthy. Larsen, if healthy, is always the first call up when they need a player for 2-3 games simply because he is considered their best prospect, then it comes down to who is healthy and available to fill in in terms of him versus Fortunus.

The funny thing is Blindenbacher would have probably been the guy recalled today (rather than Ludwig) had he stuck around. If it's lingering concussion issues, it's another incidence of unfortunate timing. If it's just giving up, though, then its a bit ironic.
