I'm sure you're right. He's got all of what, 10 pro games under his belt and was pretty invisible in the pre-season. I would just love to see if he could have an Adam effect on the team right now, even if for just a few games. I do agree though, this probably isn't the time to call him up.

Third, the forward corps in Rochester is already perilously thin, and I think Regier knows the fans would be near a mutiny if they took away another forward--more now than ever before, I think the organization is really trying to make it work with Rochester. Finally, they can just play Grags as the 12th forward/7th defenseman, and put him back on one of the points of the PP, which I think is the most likely scenario.
You make valid points. Kaleta shouldn't get much more than a game anyways so it would be a waste of cap space, albeit a small amount, to call up Kass for a game or two when Grags can easily take the 8-9 minutes of ice he'd get.
