But "the Gillis" said not to that already?
Perhaps Salo gets a half dozen games off.
Yes, Gillis did say Tanev was here to stay but he said that last year too and Tanev was sent back to make sure he was on the Moose playoff roster.
We only get 5 call ups after the trade deadline so I think you keep Tanev if you can. One never knows if one will get into a situation where you need a call up and it would sure suck if we had none left and had to ice a team less a player. So unless we need the cap space to do something like re-activate a player I see no real need to send him down. Of course if MAG is going to get the bulk of the remaining games to keep his RFA status then perhaps you do send Tanev down to make sure he is playing. I think MG made his comments before the trade so things may change.
