Well, I think there's a decent amount of NHL management and scouts that feel the same way as I do.
The lack of past examples of this type of thing being done is a pretty good indicator, as are things like this:

MarkEdwardsHP @zip1515 Yes, I thought it was a mistake & FWIW, I have heard a few #NHL staff from other teams say they were surprised as well.

(Don't worry Zip, I don't stalk you or something, I just did a Twitter search for Girgensons a few days ago and found that conversation. )

Even if they don't, reassigning him would essentially be admitting that they made a mistake and I don't know if that will happen.
