Again. We are at the roster limit and still need lupul back. At that point 2 players need to be traded or waived to get Gardiner into the lineup, one of which has to be a LHD. So what is smarter, waive a valuable asset in Phaneuf, Gunnarsson, Fraser or Liles or wait out until the TD deal one or two away and recall Gardiner? Let me exaggerate this for you have a D corps of

Chara - XXXX
Subban - XXXX
Shattenkirk - XXXX

Karlssons in the minors to recoup after a concussion. It's a month until the TD your teams in a playoff spot but you fully well know that he is better than both Shattenkirk and Subban. Do you deal one of shattenkirk or subban now out of haste, or waive one of them just to get Karlsson playing, or do you wait two weeks, maximize your return and get karlsson in a month before the playoffs start?
