Personally I think he should spend the year in the A, he is doing fine but he is not ready just yet, I believe it would be best for his development and for the team long term having him 3 more years after this. I dont get the hurry with pushing him into the lineup this year, he wasnt lighting up the AHL by any means, I say send him down and bring up Morin or Smith when healthy.
If it us to Q alone to make that call, I very much doubt he sends Saad down. Stan and management may have a different view. but in the end I think Q's decision will stick. However, I do hope Smith especially gets another look this season. Guys like Morin and Jayes will likely only get the call as replacements in the case of injuries.
