please your post was good right up to this part, we don't need Dandy anymore. We saw what we have in Hamilton and i am sure anyone of the guys we have here now can do the job cheaper.
I don't see the problem in having a character guy who can be inserted in the lineup on both offense and defense both to keep roster players honest and to take struggling players out of the lineup.
Once the top line comes back it's unlikely that anybody in the Hamilton Crew not named Pacioretty will be seeing much ice time and I'd rather they get that ice time in Hamilton than sit on the sidelines.
And why is it a matter if it was only for 30 minutes with his teammates? In all, he was on the ice for a good hour. This is a step in the right direction. (unless he felt some sort of pain or something, obviously).
