Well this puts our NHL roster at 23 now (Nichol must be added to the NHL roster to go down on a conditioning assignment). Any future moves (ie: recall of Upshall, etc) would have to have a balancing move accordingly (ie: sending someone down, placing someone on injured reserve, etc).
I'd like to see what roles Nichol gets in Milwaukee. Here in Nashville he is not going to be a scoring line center, but instead he will be the fourth line center who also plays on the penalty kill...I assume though he will get bigger minutes in the AHL though to accelerate his conditioning.
Big days ahead for the Predators deciding which roster moves to make as our injured players return. Gotta keep my fingers crossed that Poile and Co. will make the "right moves" in the end. I have faith in them.
