Because when they call down to Milwaukee they typically ask which D is playing the best. Especially in terms of a shorter term recall (ie: Klasen). Rarely do they ask for a specific type of player (ie: puck moving Dman) except in the case of an enforcer.
With Sulzer having been a solid two-way defenseman in the AHL, I don't think they recalled anyone to give Sulzer and others a chance. Obviously, Detroit was an exception where I think we can all agree skating a defenseman short was colossally stupid...
