He has 0 points in 4 games in the 'Peg since returning from the fractured orbital bone, and has to play with a full cage; doesn't seem like this is the best time to recall him, but the team needs someone to center the 4th line...
I don't see how he is a big part of the Canucks' future unless they plan on converting him to the wing. There is no way they bring him in to play third/fourth line C, he isn't that kind of player. There are already established guys on long-term deals filling the top two C spots. The Canucks need to acquire a bottom line defensive guy of the Marty Reasoner/etc ilk to kill penalties and act as a shutdown line.
