I'd rather we got Whitney or Gilbert back, but Chorney is probably the best option we've got available to us right now.
I'm glad they brought Hartikainen back. When they sent him down the last time, I was wondering why he was the one to go instead of Green.
Lander is a better center than O'Marra (with Belanger back, we don't need both to play C), and Petrell is a better penalty killer, so replacing O'Marra with Petrell is another move I like.
Hartikainen-Lander-Petrell could be a nice 4th line, but that would involve Eager sitting, and I thought he was better than most of our forwards last night, so I'm not sure he deserves it.
Chorney will just be the new sacrificial lamb on these boards, and you all know it. I hope that Teubert gets to stay in the AHL the rest of the year to get consistant play time. The same people calling him out on here before, are the same ones that are now praising Chorney for coming up. Geesh. I'll go mix another batch of kool aid for you folks.
