*Toffoli has a poor preseason so he is sent down. I don't agree with it because he proved himself the prior year and we need his skill level, but I get it.
*If you are going to send Toffoli down for having a bad preseason, how the hell can you send down Pearson? Pearson had a fantastic preseason, and plays the position we are weakest at. Pearson earned his spot, but was send down because he was waiver eligible so that we can keep one of the many redundant grinders this team loves so much. Apparently having a good preseason only matters so much...
They may think Pearson needs more seasoning, the evidence to support that is he is still down in Manchester.
Vey/Toffoli were the first call ups despite Toffoli playing poorly in preseason.
Pearson in not as talented, as Toffoli not as experienced as Vey.
So the Kings probably feel he needs more time in the AHL.
