Others have taken the step at this age. I can understand wanting him to stay in the minors, but I think they have talked to a lot of people before making this move. The insiders believe he is ready. And, if he's not, they'll send him back.
Pretty happy about these lines .. further indication Roy isn't ready though.
Its amazing how apathetic I am of the bottom 6 combinations as long as Vincour is on the 3rd line and Eakin is on the 2nd. With Smith gone I could care less how Morrow/Garbutt/Fiddler/Nystrom are mixed.
at least rome is garbage so they shouldnt keep him in the lineup too long. The question is does Larsen or Benn come back first.
Logic: Benn can go back to the AHL therefore he's gone. Since Rome truly is spare, Larsen should find his way into the lineup on a semi-permanent basis (although there should be not question he's an everyday player).
