Considering the reported conversation that was had between McStache and Karlsson during practice, I wouldnt' be surprised if it was about tonight or about waiting a few more days to get in some practice and getting back in in Washington where he'd have less pressure not being in front of the home crowd.
I don't think this will play into the decision. There is not going to be any pressure from the home crowd. I think everyone understands he is coming back extremely early from a devastating injury. The crowd will be pumped to see him whether he plays well or not. At the same time he isn't going to come back before he is ready, so when that time comes, he will be our best dman right away, rust or no rust.
