07:37 AM ET 12.26 | This holiday week didn't go quite as planned for Alex Petrovic. [Petrovic] was excited to get word he was being called back to the Panthers on Sunday night. His stay may have been short-lived. The 21-year-old defenseman filled in for Erik Gudbranson in Monday night's 6-1 loss to the visiting Lightning. On Tuesday he was sent back to San Antonio -- it might be just for Christmas but could be longer. Although Petrovic wasn't singled out by coach Peter Horachek after Monday's loss, it appears he didn't do much to stand out from the crowd. ... Making the full-time jump to the Panthers is the ultimate goal for Petrovic. It just might not come right now. The Panthers remain high on Petrovic, and he figures in the future of the franchise. Whether that continues through the weekend or not remains to be seen.

Ask Tommy Salo......ill bet he and Dan Cloutier( the toughest goalie that Vancouver fans wrecked) would disagree.

Yup. Keep changing players or they want to leave cause winning isn't an option.
