This makes all the sense in the world to me. While I don't think he was completely overwhelmed in the NHL, he still could use some experience in the A.

Now that he's had a taste of the NHL, he can regain some confidence in Syracuse and hopefully take the next step in his career.

We've all bemoaned the fact that Richards didn't end up here. True top-line centers in the NHL aren't easy to come by, and let's all hope that Brass is allowed to develop into one.

IMHO, the chances of that happening are just as good if not better than landing a #1 center through trade or free agency. No reason to witness the growing pains at the NHL level (as we saw with Zherdev, and hopefully what Brule is emerging from).
