Sending Josh Bailey to Bridgeport does not immediately improve this team in any roster-quality sense. But it might improve Bailey over the long haul (which is more important at this point) and it just might put the fear of God in some of the survivors. My hope is that it serves as an opening to evaluate Rob Schremp, and to a lesser extent Blake Comeau, once and for all.

It suddenly became the buried story, but let's not forget: Travis Hamonic's first NHL game. Smash 'em up, Travis.

FIG picks are a plenty beginning at this part of the preview thread. The only rule is you can't make them after the puck drops. For various reactions to the Bailey move beyond those we discussed at length in the preview, I've added some links here after the jump.
