McCormick is not one and yes, Adam sucks.

This is not a move to give Flynn a chance. Just a possible injury replacement. Flynn is a decent prospect and I am excited that he is going to get his first NHL game. It was a slow February for him (including injury), but he still is tied for the team lead in goals.

He really has been second in line for forward call up since a fantastic October.
To be fair, they had a scoring line winger scratched last game (Foligno). But it's good that they aren't just gonna automatically put him in because of injuries...that's accountability.
