As far as him being "sent" down, its strictly a roster juggle by activating Redden and while the Blues wait for Woywitka to clear waivers they near to clear a roster spot. Once Woywitka clears/gets claimed, then Cole will be back with the Blues. Nothing more, nothing less.
Just because he's young and not a vet does not give him any excuse to not play well. In my opinion, he has not played well. If your on an NHL team like the blues who are in a playoff chase, you cannot afford to have players on your roster that you are "trying to get a read on." You need to have players that will play well, and so far, Cole hasn't.
