In the AHL we have Barberio who runs the Crunch PP and is their best defender at starting the breakout/leading the rush. Who else would you bring up given Taormina didn't stand out, except to get brutalised by Ovechkin.
To me this isn't a give up move, this is SFY giving the Lightning the best chance possible to win while also rewarding Barberio for his brilliant play the past couple of seasons and also getting a look for next season.
Now has the season already gone, yes probably. But Barberio is just separate to that IMO.
I am excited to see Barbeiro don't get me wrong. I watch a lot of Crunch (Admirals last year) games. My point was that probably Hedman won't return and Yzerman wants to see what Barb can do in NHL. Taormina was not as bad as you say in my opinion. I believe we can show improvement for next year and bringing up Barb and see what he can do is part of that notion. What would I like? That we win the next 9 games and get into the playoffs. Will it happen without Hedman? I would't bank on it with or without him. In the end Lets Go Bolts!!!!
