I think they're being smarter than we were with Boedker, Tikhonov, Turris, etc. If the guy needs to spend time in the AHL to develop further, so be it. It will be better for him and their organization in the future. If there wasn't a lockout, i think he gets invited, but when you have to assemble a team in a week, there is no time to see how a player is looking. The question is, why bring him up when you know you are going to send him back down again? That's just bad for morale.
