As of right now, I don't expect Schwartz to start with the Blues, but I think he will get called up later.
Good point about not have a "real" training camp with the lockout situation. At the end of last season I assumed he would be no more than an injury callup if someone in the tope 9 went down. But with the reports of him have an excellent offseason in regards to strength training I started to wonder if he could make the big club out right.
I'm starting to hope that he does make the roster and pushes Dags into the 13th forward spot. Dags may have the superior shot, but his playmaking skills are pretty much non existant imo... and obvously that is the area in which Jaden excells.
