As for O'Byrne, he can't be sent down, he's played too many NHL games now so there's no need to risk losing him on waivers, to get some games in with the Dogs. As for D'Ago, I can see why they didn't send him down too, he played only a couple weeks in Hamilton this year, so perhaps Gainey didn't want to send the wrong message, or perhaps he wanted to send him the right message, you are an NHLer now and your time in the AHL is over.

I see no problem with these moves.
My mistake. I focused on the Dogs list as being solely a playoffs list while his name had to appear on the list if he wanted to play with the Dogs just after we sent him.
