For people against this move, how do you know the plan the Sabres have for him. What if they only plan on playing him around 50 games in the AHL this season?? The AHL is a developmental league for the players. I can see the Sabres picking situations directly tailored about him whether it hurts the team record or not. Just because he is playing in the AHL doesn't mean he has to be a full time AHLer. This is why we brought Rolston in. Be stupid not to use him.

Honestly, if that was the plan I'd like this even less.

I'm okay with maybe holding him out of a game in 3-in-3 situations (though it looks like they play 3-in-3s in the USHL). 3rd line center with regular PK time is the logical way to start him and hope he takes off from there.
