Would be a shame to burn a year of his ELC on this nothing season.

I think there's good reason to get him some north American experience.

 

It's not likely that he would play more than 5 or 6 days due to needing to quarantine, he only burns a year if he plays 7 games, I believe.

 

Gaining some experience though,would give him perspective on what he needs to work on for next year, and the conditioning level he needs to keep up with the NHL schedule.

Playing 1 game burns a year.  He turns 20 in June and won’t be considered a teenager anymore for the slide.  

 

Hughes was still a teenager when he signed in March 2019 - he turned 20 in October 1999.  He still burned a year by playing those 5 games.

I still think it's worth it

We have lots of room due to LTIR

I think we could use that room for the extra year. Why waste a year of cheap cap when we can use it down the road; for only 7 games?
