PTSD settling in...
More like nostalgia. Major difference between those guys and Gordon? NHL experience. Guy played half the year in the bigs last season, and did not look out of place.

Keep in mind, he is not our best recall option, even at his position. He's number 3, behind Schroeder and Ebbett. Problem is, we already called them up. So Gordon is our 3rd call-up amongst centermen, making him our 7th centerman.

Can I say that again? 7TH CENTERMAN. With NHL experience, sound defensive play, and the ability to win faceoffs. What teams out there have better talent at such a low slot on the depth charts? Not many, so chill.
