This is exactly what I have been saying. I don't see Boyle as being enough of an improvement to the incumbent players to warrant moving Olsen. If Johns, Holl, or Clendening were closer to being NHL ready I wouldn't have a problem with it, but as it stands now the Hawks have little NHL ready defensive depth. Injuries will happen, and in my opinion having Olsen ready to step up on D will contribute more to the season as a whole than having Boyle and Lalonde/Stanton.
