Send him to TO instead, he'd get some decent playing time there at least.
The problem with that is, who do you bring up to take his place in the pressbox?
The best two Dmen down there are Luoma and Allen, and they need ice time to develop just as much as Semenov does. After them the pickings are slim. No way I want penalty machines like Thompson or Horacek up here, they don't deserve it.
I agree he needs ice time, but he's just going to have to wait his turn to get it. If he has to face competition to get it, I don't see that as a bad thing.
