Don't get me wrong, I like him as a person and the work ethic he has been showing, but I just can't see how he can help this team unless multiple players go down due to injury with no time for a call up.
That's what I'm saying. If he's below 100% but can still block shots and hang at an NHL level before the playoffs, then include him on the playoff roster. If he doesn't play prior to playoffs or can't hang, then no dice.
