oh and i'd really love to see Feds back...running out of roster spots though lol. maybe MZA can compete with Avery for that extra forward spot? there's always injuries anyway.
lol, you ran out of roster spots in your first sentence. I recall Torts implying Prospal was done because of his knees. You really just have to ask yourself who the odd men out are going to be. Who can be stashed in Hartford if you are taking the "there's always injuries" route. Wasn't it just the season before last that we had one of the fewest games loss to injuries? You can't exactly rely on players getting hurt. cross your fingers it doesn't!

I'm fine with this as long as they only bring him up / dress him for the games a fist is needed. Is he waiver exempt? Not sure how beneficial it would be to keep him in the line up. Has some success in Hartford and at AHL level so he probably would not be a useless one dimensional 4th liner.
