As tempting as that would be, I think the safe bet is to let him get his feet wet in the AHL first and see how that goes.

This team needs to learn how to start developing prospects correctly and let some guys work their way through the system. I'd hate to see him get caught like a deer in headlights with the speed of the NHL and put anything in his head right off the bat.

Edit: to add to that discussion...

TB will get first up close look at recent signee D Andrej Sustr at tomorrow's game-day skate. Not expected to play tho. Beyond that, TBD.
