They'd have to recall him from the loan and send him down.

I'm not going to ask Poile about it either.

The reality is that Forsberg needs to adapt his game to playing on smaller ice against men rather than international ice against other kids. The talent shows but it isn't translating yet to the NHL game. 17 career games .... 182:29 of ES TOI ... one total ES point, an assist ... not even Clune like numbers. That coupled with his horrendous GA/60 at ES indicates some time working on his game with the Ads could do him a lot of good.
