**** you Chris.
I still think Laughton gets sent down. We need the space. Why use all the LTIR up?
More than LTIR, we need cheap and movable bodies.
Having flexibility among your mobile parts makes the LTIR dance far more manageable.
Calling players up and sending them down is costly if they don't fall under the pre-cut-off for waiver eligibility.
Laughton becomes more valuable because of his flexibility but not entirely because he can't go to the OHL.
This is where guys like McGinn really become the missing pieces.
This is also going to be hard on Gustafsson since I believe he's beyond the market for waivers. He's either in the lineup, in the pressbox, or waived. I have to double check that, but it scares me because committing to Meszaros may be problematic for Gustafsson's development.
It also would limit his ability to be a call-up should he end up back in the AHL.
