25-30 NHL games plus NHL practices every day vs 60 AHL and AHL practices every day.

1) What's better for the team? Tough to say. But if Mrazek is ready, I'll go with Mrazek. I don't think it's a good idea to rely on Gustavsson -- especially if the coach doesn't trust him.
So I think the team is better off with a 55/27 Jimmy/Mrazek share than a 65-17 Jimmy/Gus share

2) I think 25-30 NHL games + NHL practice and experience is better for Mrazek than 60 AHL games and AHL practice every day.
I've changed my mind, I agree with this and hope Gustavsson's injury forces their hands. We need a capable backup, use Mrazek like Carolina used Ward in 2006 - could mean 5-6 more wins.
