For example, when the staff reigned in Jones's minutes for a 2-3 week span to get his legs back under him, they had no option to send him down where he could get multiple days rest in between games. I know the AHL has a funky schedule sometimes, but for the most part, there is a good rest period. They peeled back his minutes and now he is getting good mins again. I think this is because he is going to have a nice break at the Olympics and then they can continue to run him hard. Point is, they had to let the kid grow a little and rest.
With Forsberg you do have that opportunity. He doesn't need to get pummeled every night by grown professionals. He learns the rink, how to take checks, how to take care of himself on and off ice, he will be up.
He is tearing it up again for the Ads.
