Yogan started the season there and he's been doing great in the AHL now. I think that's how McColgan should look at it: go down there, work your butt off, come up to the AHL and go from there.
PTO's don't need to be signed with the sole purpose of physically playing them in games. McIlrath only played two games his first time around. Yogan only played two. Even if we just sign them to a PTO in order to get them to Hartford, meet with the coaching staff and players, spend a week's worth of practice sessions with the team and getting an understanding of how the organization runs things it is worth it.
