Joe is looking like a stud and is the Kessel of the AHL right now. Some AHL playoffs certainly would help him too. No need to rush him when we have Connolly as a stopgap (starting tomorrow I think..FINALLY!!!)
Yup, I say we keep him in the A the full year with one of Kadri/Frattin unless injuries force our hand (not that likely since we have: Grabo, Connolloy, Lombardi, Bozak, Steckel, Dupuis, and to a certain extent Boyce as NHL level centres). Frattin/Kadri-Colborne-Crabb will probably be the best-line in the AHL this season once one of Kadri/Frattin are down. The marlies should be fun to watch this season.

I'm wondering how Burke's going to make room for guys like Colborne, Kadri, and Aulie who should have full-time NHL jobs next season.
