IMO Sgarbossa really needs to spend the year in the AHL. I'm one of the biggest Sgarbossa fans their is (have been since he played on Saginaw) and I think it would be a disservice to his overall game to rush him. Spot duty for injuries I wouldn't mind seeing him with the Avs, but that is it. While he is playing good in the AHL and scoring at a good pace, he has some holes in his game that he needs to fix (namely his is not strong enough yet to play his game at a NHL level and his defensive prowess leave much to be desired at this moment). Bringing him up this year to play third line minutes (on a wing more than likely) would probably stunt his development a bit. I think he can develop into a solid #2C if given the time to refine his game.
