He's been good with and without the puck and if he can play the last two games of his five game stint like that, he'll be sticking around.
Of course, the quick fix of sending him down is re-inserting Eller into the line-up.
That's why I think he'll be sent down. If Eller can do just as well as Galchenyuk in that 3rd line center position, why waste a year of his ELC and hurt Eller's development in the process?
