how likely would it be that huskins would get picked up on waivers if we tried to send him down? apparently nobody wanted him before we signed him a week into the season.
I suppose it depends on when he would theoretically be sent to waivers. The longer the season goes on, the more and more likely he would get picked (as teams get their rosters set for the playoffs, and late injuries send teams into a panic).
That said, it's highly, HIGHLY unlikely that he would be sent down. Lashoff will get more minutes in GR (where he could be higher in the D pairings) than he will in Detroit, where he's pretty much assured of the 5/6 line, if not riding the bench. Best to let him get more minutes playing under a coach that's phenomenal at getting young talent to perform well, then to be up in Detroit where he'll get fewer minutes, and fewer games played.
Lashoff is 22. He'll have plenty of time to develop into a potential every-game player here in Detroit. Until then, he's waiver exempt, and will do better where he can play consistently, so it makes the most sense to send him down.
"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,
is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.
And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!
When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.
And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!
And they call him Sandy Claws!
