Bruins Keep Lucic?

Word on the street over at TSN is that the Bruins management has decided to keep Milan Lucic past the 9 game try-out. This means that although Chiarelli has the option of sending Lucic back to the Vancouver Giants, the Bruins will lose a year off his three year entry level contract. The TSN article is contrary to a report in today's Boston Globe which says that no decision has been made on whether or not to keep him in Boston.
General manager Peter Chiarelli said there's been no decision on whether to keep
Lucic beyond nine games. "If he stays past nine, I am not ruling out returning
him," Chiarelli wrote in an e-mail.

It is my opinion that Lucic should stay with the team, as he has shown he can handle the big leagues. As long as he is not overused and put in too many situations where he is left vulnerable his development shouldn't be stunted. It would also be great to see the team release him to play in the upcoming World Juniors tournament at Christmas. This should be a tournament where he will dominate the opposition, and give him another opportunity to gain experience as captain.
