Hopefully he's much better, but now isn't the time to be finding out. Let him star in the AHL playoffs.
Yeah, I agree with you. The main reason why I think we need him is because of PP, but I think you're right, it's probably better if he gets some more exp. down in Norfolk, then competes for a spot next year
