I think I am known for having a mancrush on Fasth. That said, do NOT bring him into the NHL this year. He's not the player who makes us go from 10th to instant cup contender. Put him with the Whale and see what he can do. Let him adjust to the game on smaller ice. He (and Lindberg) has all the abilities to make the Whale a dangerous underdog, should they reach the playoffs.
You don't just throw a young, promising prospect in the roster during the playoff push. I know, a lot of you guys think, he won't hurt, it can't be getting any worse. I agree with you there. But remember, a year with this team, if they go on another losing-streak can hurt his confidence in his ability to play in NA.
Another point, he never has had as many games as this season. Exhausted players are more prone to injuries, and while I'm not saying Fasth is injury prone, he has some history with freak accidents.
