He just put up two great games against LE in the AHL. I think Dallas was potentially showcasing him for a trade anyway with the conditioning stint.
No, he isn't good enough for any of those. And teams don't showcase a guy by demoting him to the minors.

There's a real disconnect here between what the OP is suggesting, and then the responses to offers.

Dallas needs a d by Monday and is desperate.

Therefor you aren't going to get an actual NHL roster dman for an AHL forward. You wouldn't get that in the best situation, nevermind when you are desperate. Plus, there seems to be several teams having injuries in their d corps. If you are deadset on making it Wandell for a D, you'll likely end up with an AHL level guy, and even then I'm having a hard time thinking of a team that needs a 14th/15th forward more than an 8th/9th d.
