For this team to move forward, they need some people to break through and break out. Adam getting his confidence back is good, be it up with the big club or down on the farm. They need guys with finish and he's got the ability. And if he can bounce back, it's good for the team be it on the ice or in trade value.
I also think Mancari was acquired, in part, in case Luke starts the season in Rochester. They worked very well together in Portland, and MM's presence should help him to get off to a fast start in Rochester. That should help him build confidence and heading toward a recall.
