strange that the player that Brooks wants to see (dubinsky) is clearly not ready while the players that he lists as maybes (Callahan, Dawes, Korpikoski) and not at all (Baranka) are far more advanced and deseerving of a call up. This is not a knock on Dubinsky, he's playing in his first pro season, but what has he done to earn a call up? Makes me question Brook's handle on our prospects.
I do think that the time has come to give Callahan and Baranka a shot. Dawes is also deserving but somewhat tricky because he doesn't have a spot. He's not someone that your gonna call up to muck and grind. Ideally you want to put him on the left side of Cullen on the second line (well actually there's nothing ideal about Cullen as a second line pivot, but you know what I meen.) The problem is that you already have an undersized young left winger that should (even though he rarely does) play at that spot. How many offensively minded, smallish left wingers can this team play? If Prucha is traded (and i'd put money down that he is) then that would be the right time to call up Dawes.
