The ELC year that's been lost is a sunk cost, no need to even consider it at this point. Just have to look at whether it's better for him and the organization to have him play NHL games or AHL games. If he looks like he belongs in practice, he'll see NHL action. If not, he won't. The ELC year isn't even a consideration.

That said, I agree he should get a look regardless of his practice performance. I do know however that we're typically not a team that gives a guy a spot unless he forces his way in.

EDIT: Saw this in the Whalepack thread:

Not so Fast: Tortorella says of Swedish prospect Jesper Fast, who has been skating in Hartford: "We just wanted a look at him."
