That's why you give him only 9 games, it doesn't burn a year. I hate rushing prospects which is why I wouldn't keep him up for more than 9 games.

It sends a big message to Palushji, Avtsin, Trotter etc... That if you step up, you will be rewarded. If we have 2 long term top 6 injuries, after AK & DD, we don't have anyone to step up.

More importantly, we are without our offensive catalyst in Markov and getting a good start to the season is integral to making the playoffs.

Gio sucked at the beginning of last year, Gill looks awful, Eller will be rusty, Gomez can use all the top 6 support to get some confidence going, Price has yet to look lights out.

All being said we have a tonne of minor injuriesand there are a bunch of question marks surrounding our D, we can use all the firepower we can get to start the season.

I say ride the hot streak for 9 games, it worked for us with Halak.
