Having him back doesn't necessarily mean that he'll be playing every game. Give him a game or two to make sure that he's ready, then see how he does. If he's better than the other options, play him. If not, sit him.
There's nothing bad about having more depth and more options this time of year. We missed November, so there was no chorus of "at least this didn't happen in April" with each injury.
At the very least, knowing that there's someone who could take their place is an added incentive for the ones playing.
I want to see him out there and showing what a real man can do, but even if he isn't up to that, it's always good to have someone back in playing shape.
Money on the board: Current total: $6
$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.
Hamsters I have had: (current Wings highlighted)
Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik
Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert
Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan
Andrew Patrick Ian Todd
Jordin Damien Gustav James
