When he does come back, he will be extremely rusty. IMO the team's only chance to get to the playoffs is to keep playing musical goalies with Hutton and Mazanec. If Rinne is put back in at any point this season, the rust will doom the team.
You do know that the Preds have an AHL affiliate? Perhaps Pekka playing 3 to 5 games in Milwaukee before playing in the NHL would be a wise move.
