Hall-RNH-Eberle
Perron-Gagner-Yakupov
?-Gordon-Hemsky
Smyth-Roy-Jones

Easy minutes... give him PP time where I think he would do good... especially with RNH out a bit early... and let him learn... better I think than 100 points in the Q... 20-25 points in NHL at this age improving his skills against big league guys... could be huge for him

(or maybe he is really suited for ECHL)
At best and this is even a stretch he gets a couple games while RNH is out, but I suspect he is back to the Q early so he can be with his team. Looking good in a tourney like the Penticton one means nothing.

That is true.

If insurance covers his salary, it's possible that his salary won't work against the cap. I'm not sure how it works right now after the new CBA
If they are at the max cap, then they are allowed to go over the cap by the amount of Pronger's salary.
