Thing about callups is they break the groupthink, so to speak. Youve got a group of guys playing together all season, practicing together, then a new guy comes in with a fresh perspective and performs well early on.
Dont know if that says a hell of a lot about Tort's coaching ability, though.
very interested to see what corey lockes got. playing on the 2nd line as a winger too. i'm almost positive hes a point machine as a center in the ahl, i dont see why we dont use him as center and put drury to the wing on the 2nd line, beats me
