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: $2
$1 for each goal scored by a current Wing after whom I've named a hamster. +$5 if one scores a hat trick.
+$1 if a GWG. +$5 if it is a GWG in a series-winning game.+$50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.
$5 for each time a goalie after whom I've named a hamster prevents all opposing shots from going in the net.
The hamsters names are as follows (current Wings in red)
Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik
Niklas Matthieu Daniel Robert
Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan
Andrew (Drew) Patrick Ian Todd
Jordin Damien Gustav James
