It's like saying Erik Karlsson made to many mistakes as a rookie, send him back to Sweden, some players need to grow on the ice, Lehner is one of them.
... uh... we sent Erik Karlsson down because he wasn't good enough for the NHL. If Lehner gets a free ride in the AHL, it's not good for his development. We want to build a competitive team, that means pushing Lehner by having other goaltending options. Lehner has proven that he's got potential, now he needs to put that potential to work and earn his minutes.
