Actually a little surprised about O'byrne.

Not because the time in Hamilton won't help him, but because there is now no 7th defender up with the big club.

They'll probably call Paciortty to replace Tanguay, Chipchura to replace Maxwell and Weber to replace O'Byrne. He might get the sixth spot to let Brisebois rest a bit.

Having only 6 Dmen available is risky. Suppose one of them comes down with an intestinal virus a couple of hours before a game. It would be too late to recall someone from Hamilton.

Bring Weber, he will steal Brisebois' place. Can't wait to see that goof out of lineup.

So, no waivers for Obyrne? I thought he had to go through waivers to be sent down...

Nope, a few more games played and he would have though.

Finally, Maxwell has to get MUCH better in the defensive zone.

Per CKAC, Koivu is supposed to return against New Jersey, so I wouldn't bet on Chipchura being recalled. I think Pacioretty could be recalled, however.

He's a 20 year old rookie. That's obvious and applies to any rookie.

But Chipchura is doing awesome in the AHL, maybe we can give him a spot on the wing. He sucks on faceoffs anyway.

Maybe Lapierre will move up to wing on a top 3 line?

Weber appears to have passed him on the depth chart. From the games I have seen, Weber plays on the top PP unit, Carle on the second unit. Weber has more points per game, and about twice as many shots per game as Carle. It's a shame, I'm sure Carle would be closer to the NHL if he hadn't been injured so often. Here's hoping he stays healthy and makes up his lost ground.

I don't see that happening, Lapierre is doing so well with his current wingers, you don't want to break that.

O'Byrne needs to get some playing time in if he's going to get better. It's a great call to let him play 10-15 games in Hamilton and then see. I don't think they HAVE to recall anybody, but if they do it won't be Weber. Whoever they call will likely sit, so that points to a vet like Henry or Belle.

In Maxwell's case - he's clearly not ready. He's overmatched in every way and you really see the difference between a guy like D'Agostini, who's put in his time, and a rookie pro like Maxwell. If Koivu's not ready I see Chips coming up to replace Maxwell on the 4th line and Pacioretty to replace Tanguay.
