- So for tonight's game Irving gets the start and Taylor is still the backup?
- But for Weds game it could be Kipper getting the start and Joey Mac as the backup?

When was the last time Joey Mac played a game? Seems like a strange backup decision given he hasn't played in forever and the decent play of Irving over the last few games in my opinion.
- MacDonald must remain on the active roster for 30 days
- Irving can be sent to the AHL, but I think after 30 days he must clear waivers again
- For tonight, barring weirdness, Irving gets the start with Taylor as backup as I don't think MacDonald could get here in time for the pre-game skate.
- I believe Kipper must remain on IR for 7 days, so he may not be eligible for Wednesday's game.
