I think the rule is (and I very well may be wrong on this) is that he can PLAY ten games and then be sent back to the minors without it costing a year. The way I understand the rule, if he sits in the press box for a game, it DOES NOT count against the ten game limit. This means he could potentially be practicing with the team and playing once a week until December.
I'm not saying that's a good idea, but I do think it would be OK to have him sit in the press box for a couple games. Either way, I really want Staal to be with the team for a little while. He really doesn't need any more CHL experience. He needs to be playing against higher level competition, not 16 year olds.
