It's not an option and wasn't even a consideration. In order to be eligible to play in the AHL during the Olympic Break, waiver-exempt players (i.e. Gilroy, Anisimov, Del Zotto) need to miss five of their teams final 20 games before the break. They haven't.
Plus AA is on pace to play a full 82 game NHL season, so adding another 7 AHL games to go with a compressed NHL schedule after the break might have been a bit much. In any event, it's not happening.
How has Grachev looked over the past two weeks, Squish?
Pretty much the same he did the two weeks before that.

Didn't see it. Was watching the Rangers game and Opening Ceremonies. Meant to check for highlights, but have been out all day, just got back 10 minutes before the game started.

He's in the line-up, he's getting decent ice time. Took a dumb boarding penalty and then tried to get Gilles to go with him, but Gilles wasn't about blow the power play for his team. Been a lot of yapping between him and Gilles, but nothing more yet.
Give me a god damn break if you think the goals allowed were all Wiikman's fault. Too much lazy standing around by this team. This is just a plain old mess.
Byers should be in the NHL.
You know what guys and ladies I am sorry but you people really mistake bad goal tending for poor play a lot. When ever a favorite on here gives up a bunch of goals it is poor team play but if it was Vally he just sucks? Guys he was beat under his arm pit 2 times and was guilty of playing ass in the net most of the night. Take the blinders off. Yes the team is weaker but tonight no big saves.
