This would ultimately be a stupid move by Holloway for a number of reasons:

1) His best opportunity to crack the Kings roster is now, with a possible openings on the 3rd/4th lines.

2) He is one of the more experienced players in Manchester who the Kings may consider deserving of an opportunity. As we all know, seniority takes precedent with this management group and they highly value experience.

3) Is he really going to face better competition in Europe than what he was facing in the AHL?

4) He has three seasons of minor-pro experience, there are many others who have waited around much longer for an opportunity. He may be burning bridges and find himself replaced in the depth charts by an up-and-coming prospect.

If I'm his agent, I urge him to stick around. Then again, if I'm Holloway, I tough it out and prove to the organization that I'm worthy of a roster spot. If he doesn't want to earn his opportunity and would rather be given one, then see ya later Bud.
