Uh, interesting. I don't recall entire NHL coaching staffs being involved like this during a lockout before. It's quite a contingency plan. I hope it's less of a 'Let's get this guy some experience' thing than a move towards greater development, system emphasis and organizational info sharing. Too bad there aren't more higher-end prospects in the pipeline at the moment, particularly up front.
Pretty good silver lining to the lockout like GMGM said. Should be interesting to watch in Hershey too. Like you mentioned, to bad it's really only Galiev, Orlov, Sjogren and Schilling in the pipeline right now for young talent that should be in the NHL shortly. I guess you could also put Grubauer in there, but this doesn't change a whole lot for goalies though doesn't it?
