I'm not sure anyones going to pick up an injured Garnier at his salary he's the most overpaid guy on the team.

Oh I agree, but a rebuild team with cap space as a future investment would be a logical decision.

He is taking Calc II at Wake Tech. 

His mom said if he, "don't raise his GPA then I guess Young Tro ain't hanging out with his little friends."

Sounds serious...

"CHICAGO - The circumstances were serendipitous.

Petr Mrazek had not played a competitive hockey game in more than eight weeks. The Carolina Hurricanes were in Chicago for a two-game set against the Blackhawks. The Chicago Wolves, the Canes' American Hockey League affiliate, were playing a Thursday afternoon game just up the road.

It was the perfect set-up for Mrazek to make a conditioning start and feel out his surgically repaired right thumb in a game before returning to the crease for the Canes.

So, Mrazek and forward Max McCormick packed their bags to depart the team hotel in Chicago on Thursday morning. While still observing all league travel protocols, Assistant General Manager Darren Yorke played the role of hockey dad and drove his "sons" Petr and Max an hour northwest to the Triphahn Community Center & Ice Arena, the Wolves' practice facility where they are playing home games without fans this season."

Must have been an awkward car ride.

""So far, so good. We'll see how it is tomorrow," Mrazek said on Thursday night. "This was a good step going forward. Hopefully it will be good, and I'll be ready to go soon."

On Friday, Mrazek was back on PNC Arena ice taking shots once again, and a return to the crease for the Canes seems to be closer than ever.

"Petr hasn't really said, 'Hey, I'm 100 percent ready to play,' so we'll wait and see. I think he is," head coach Rod Brind'Amour said in his Zoom availability on Friday. "I think that will be day-to-day. We'll monitor it as we go.""

I get the feeling Mrazek is being overly cautious from Rods comments lately. Which don’t get me wrong I totally get. Especially when you basically had your thumb ripped off. But it sounds like it’s more a mental thing/pain management for Mrazek at this point, than a medical clearance thing. Considering he did play a game. 

I figure it’s probably best to play him tonight if he’s good to go and once against Florida and then rest him vs. Detroit and then go from there.
