People really need to chill the F out about the whole "burning a year of his ELC". Based on his season this year, and the fact he's destined to at least start next season in the AHL. His next contract won't be a killer, so the whole idea of being angry about burning a cheap contract year isn't a big deal.

Giving him the tryout to start the season was the right move.

Giving him a shot to play in the NHL all season wasn't a terrible idea at the time.

Sure in retrospect he was better off being sent back, but I don't really see the harm in having him play 20 some odd NHL games. He'll be better for it.
