Makes sense. He gets NHL pay during the all star week and now he's back down.

I'd say he'd probably play 5 games before he's called up.

He was only up during the AHL all-star break.

Let's hope he can regain his form sooner rather than later.

Yep. Im not against it but is there some kind of limit to how many times a player can be recalled/assigned?

I'm a little confused. Is he down there the rest of the season, or is this just part of his conditioning stint?

I'm not sure why you are confused. It's a demotion, basically.

He hasn't been able to get back into form since his concussion. He admitted himself it's been a hard recovery.

So it's a demotion until he shows he's ready for a promotion. If that takes the season, so be it.

And isn't it something that our players only have that short "walk" up or down? Great move to unite our NHL/AHL systems in one place.

Please explain. The guy still isn't 100%, Leafs made sure he got some more practice time in by calling him up for the AHL All-Star break where he never would've got practice. People have zero patience.

He was sent down for conditioning, and brought up during the AHL All Star Break to get NHL level pay. Go read the Leafs FB post about it, so terrible how many idiotic fans we have.

Is shutting him down for the season an option? It's not so good in the sense he loses development time, but do you really want a groggy Jake Gardiner slogging through meaningless AHL games where he could easily hurt himself again, or rest up until September? It's just so unfortunate all of our kids seem to hit some kind of brick wall after their rookie years.

It wasn't so that he could get the money. It was mainly for him to get some practice.

Talk to the player. He wants to, and expects to, play in the NHL. Schultz is playing in the NHL and will likely never be sent back and forth to the AHL.

Both. Obviously he came up for practice, but giving the kid some extra money when he SHOULD be with us anyway is the bonus.

I think what happens here is he goes down to the minors and gets back in game shape. I think they are seeing if Kostka can handle NHL minutes and if he starts to falter Gardiner will be back up once he is game ready.

Y'know, unless there's another lockout, where Schultz plays in the AHL and subsequently get's a concussion rendering him not the same player right after he get's back from said injury

AHL time isnt necessarily a bad thing. Frattin didn't have a good camp and was subsequently sent back down to the AHL, was recalled and now is performing. I expect to see a very similar situation with Gardiner because like most skilled players recovering from an injury, it takes a while to get your hands back.

Trade Liles -- seriously -- stop with the dumb management. Gardiner >>>> Liles and he's in the minors? Really?

Just like Frattin >>>>> MacArthur. Enough with keeping spots for veterans that suck.

If he can play in the AHL. He can play in the NHL. He got his concussion in the AHL. Those guys run around down there. NHL is more positional -- smarter. Gardiner is better suited up here playing with smarter players.

Stop screwing around RC or you'll be the next Wilson in a hurry.

Like I have posted before. The Leafs need a #1 goalie, or all their young D will follow the same development curve of Schenn and now Gardiner. First the player loses confidence in the goalie, and thus tries too much - making mistakes. Then the player loses confidence in himself. Young developing D need a proven verteran #1 behind them.

Conditioning assignments are pretty normal for players returning from injury.
