    he looked good in the preseason and has some talent, but it has been pretty tough for him since game 2 or 3 of the season. This is a good move, he should be a pretty good AHL defender, although i would have preferred hicketts to be sent down

    That must mean that De La Rose is OK to play, then.

    I figured Sulak would eventually be back in GR but Hicketts should've been the first one to go.

    Good skating and energy, just lacked a little poise and discipline from what I saw.

    They probably figure Hicketts is what he is at this point. WHen guys get healthy he can sit in the press box if he has to. Sulak seems to have some untapped potential that getting used to North American ice and things like that could help. Makes sense to send him down and work onpositioning and things like that

    Agreed Sulak played better than Hicketts

    Right choise. Worst on scoring chances for/against.

    Hicketts is the next bad to go down

    Understandable. I think he may have a future with the team, probably a bottom pairing guy, but this wasn't the year for him. Hicketts is definitely next.

    This isn't a bad decision. He has more to gain from playing a lot in GR than someone like Hicketts. In the end his skill and head may ultimately prevent him from being a solid NHLer, but we won't know if that is the case until we remove the NA ice variable. While he makes some nutty reads at time, he is surprisingly strong in one-on-one coverage/battles and his athleticism and reach allow him to recover from some sketchy decisions. His hands and passing will prevent him from getting off the bottom pair at the NHL level but we have certainly seen worse.

    ^^^ Great evaluation. I'm happy for him in either league, you can tell he loves the game. The trip of making in the NHL and fans here getting to see him has been fun. With the confidence instilled he might tear the AHL a new one.

    I think he was cleared by the Canadian doctors.
