But in the end its MT and MB who decide, and could very well just keep him around if he starts lighting things up

I rather have him develop properly in the minors. It's not as if the team is going anywhere this year. If the team isn't going anywhere far this year why rush him?

My personal choice is to send him back to Sarnia to play out the year as the go to guy. But I am sure the coaching staff in Montreal knows better than any of us. If they feel he belongs, and it is better for his development, they'd do it. And if that is the case and he does very well, why not trade someone to make the space for him?
