Allows us to keep Klefbom, Gernat in the minors and Nurse in junior for another year...Ekblad Is far from a guarantee ...even then might be better for him to be in juniors again to develop and save a contract yr also....right now Potter is our 3rd best right hand shot.....Jason Smith had a very similar early career to what Luke is going thru right now.....could be a good pick up to strengthen the right side and add some much needed functional size and toughness .....I wouldn't mind picking up Luke, would make it easier to cutdown on Justin's mins
