I understand what you're saying, but that's why I said "unless they blow away the competition." In other words, if he comes out in camp and the guy is on fire I think it will force Poile to make a trade and keep him in the lineup. Or waive some guys to send down. Something. I can't see him sending Beck or Forsberg or Watson or whoever back down if they earn a spot in camp.

But if they look just about the same as other guys, send them down and see if they can get a little better while waiting for an injury call-up (which is going to happen). Then maybe they get a little better playing top line minutes in the minors and when they come up they force their way into the lineup.
