Perhaps Avs feel it's good for them to practice and socialize with the rest of the team. But it's not ideal that Elliott hasn't played a single game in almost a month now and Barrie played four games in the last month and a half.
Only other thing I could figure is the team didn't want to waste transactions by reassigning them, especially since Connolly was called up and reassigned already. Both would probably be recalled should the team make the playoffs, though if they were reassigned I don't know if they could be called up because of the transaction limit. However it's also possible I misunderstood the rule and it doesn't apply to NHL playoff rosters.
