Geez, if he had known that all he had to do was score one goal and get a callup, he would have done it 30 games ago!
Baffled. Absolutely baffled. But he’s reportedly in San Jose already, so he may get some icetime tonight.
If it’s at the expense of Chris Mueller, that’ll be very disappointing.
You work hard, you do all the right things, you say all the right things, you practice, you produce, and it’s great. And then someone else who doesn’t produce gets the promotion. That’s got to be rough for a guy like Matt Halischuk who has been pretty good lately.
I’m happy for Andreas because I like the guy, but I refuse to believe that he was the most deserving of a callup.
I’m sure there’s a reason why they chose him. Maybe his previous NHL experience. Maybe he fits tonight’s gameplan better than others. Maybe they were tired of dressing Wade Belak and wanted someone who could play some D. Maybe it’s just for depth. Maybe it’s blackmail. Maybe they’re going to try to showcase him for a possible trade. Maybe Lane just said that he had enough.
Lots of maybees. Feel free to add your best theory in the comments section.
