It's not about being grateful or not, it's about what is best for his development as a player and what is best for the Ottawa Senators. Lehner followed up greatness, with crap and you don't reward someone coming off crap. You send him back and let him show you that he has learned from the situation and stepped up his game...then you reward him. If not being the undisputed #1 goaltender causes Lehner to play like crap when he does get his shot, then he doesn't deserve to be the #1 goaltender. Putting up good stats in the AHL really shouldn't be such a hurdle for someone as talented as Lehner.
