Ugh, this is one of my biggest pet peeves. I don't get this "everyone needs 3 years in the minors before they're ready" mentality so many people have at this site. Yes, that's true for plenty of players, but not all of them. If Derek Roy is ready now, he should be playing now, ditto for Miller, Vanek and any other prospect in the league. Now I don't quite agree with mdoak's comment but I think if a player is ready to graduate the AHL, you bring him up. If Curtis Brown has to go to make room for Derek Roy, then you do that.
