Just curious, what good does it do a player like Sgarbossa to just sit as a healthy scratch? Why not either send him back down for more development or play him?
There is some value to having him up. He gets to train and practice with NHL players and see their work ethic first hand. He builds a relationship with the coaching staff and team. Gets to learn whatever system Sacco is trying to put in (if there is one). I'd argue that his time would be better in Lake Erie though.
