(Assuming we can do that. I think we can, right?)
I don't know if we can recall a player from juniors for the playoffs, but if he's going to stay I think he rotates as a healthy scratch a la Larsson. He's clearly good enough to be here, and Pete has shown that he thinks thinks having young players be with the team full time is just as valuable as play time.
Plus it'll force the Teddy's and Bernier's to have a sense of urgency knowing a hungry player is chomping at the bit to get into action.
