He played one playoff game so i think mangement thinks hes ready for the nhl. the only down point i can think of is he costs 900 k if that is a downside? I think we need to start promoting from within.What the point of drafting well if they never get to play ?
It's not like he was drafted eons ago. The guy needs to play more pro hockey. having depth on the LW isn't a bad thing. If the guy can watch, learn, and practice with the pros and not be counted on to "Save" our 2nd line LW we'd be better off. Give the guy another year of seasoning.

I like Pearson, but if you can add Morrow or someone else on the cheap for a year, I think you have to do it. I mean this with all due respect to his talents, but I don't think Pearson improves the team for this year.
