I tend to think that Tom is correct. Look at it this way: let's suppose this rookie rotation played out all season. Not even putting Weinhandl into the mix, Hunter, Papineau and Bergenheim would each dress for 1/3 of the games.

That's less than 28 games each!

No one can convince me that such little icetime is going to benefit an 18 y/o hockey player.

Granted, injuries among forwards will open up other playing opportunities, but you get the point.

Other options:
- Weinhandl stays put in Bridgeport upon his return.
- A trade is made.

This will all play itself out, based on what happens on the ice.
