First, there's no message being sent to Callahan here. He was sent down because he's struggling and needs to find his game and regain his confidence. He's already been sent down once, but got the reprieve when Moore failed to impress in his debut. But he continued to struggle and have his confidence further eroded. Recalling him now just because Avery got hurt would just further delay his opportunity to get back on track.

Second, Dawes - Moore - Parenteau haven't played together very long, only since Anisimov left for the WJCs. Otherwise Anisimov and Parenteau (with various left wings) have been a fixture all season. So we're not talking about some long-standing familiarity between the players here. And frankly, all three of them have been as or more productive during points in the season when they were playing with different linemates.

Personally, I hope they're not on a line together, because if they are, none of them are going to get any ice time.
