I see this argument made a lot, however nobody seems to consider the fact that maybe there WAS a good reason not to sign someone to a very short PTO, or bring up a player from the ECHL.

This is not XBOX. Moving players around, especially at minor league hockey and down, isn't just clicking a button.
