This sucks:

Although per NHL rules, after the trade dealine on Apr 3, only AHL players called up after that date may be returned to the AHL. 2/2
The first part was about no clear day roster.

They've got to at least ensure Reilly Smith and Jamie Oleksiak are in the AHL the day of the trade deadline ... which would mean they miss a game against the Anaheim Ducks.

Ideally, Eakin, Smith, Roussel, Dillon, Oleksiak, and Jordie Benn would all be able to play in the AHL playoffs, but I don't see how they could accomplish that.

Honestly ... I'd call up Wandell, Petersen, Sloan, and keep up Benn. That way at least Eakin, Smith, Oleksiak, and Dillon could join Texas for a hopefully very long playoff run.

One potential loss on trade deadline day would be worth it.
