Here's a thought ... Tom Wandell is likely going to eat a ton of healthy scratches. That's not going to help him develop one bit. He never really spent much time in the AHL either.
He would require waivers, but you can typically sneak guys through at the beginning of the year when teams have warm, fuzzy feelings about their current roster.
It might be worth the risk, but you'd have to send him down and leave him alone. With his contract, you'd have to recall him on re-entry, and you'd probably lose him.
He could get a ton of minutes at ES and on both the PK and PP. It's definitely a thought, IMO.
