I have no problem with this move. He needs big minutes after coming off his concussion and to get back into the flow of the game.
Sending him back down to the Marlies so he can play in all situations 5 on 5, pk, pp and get his legs going again. With the short season there is no room to ease a guy back into the lineup. If this was an 82 game season you can afford to bring in along slowly but not in a 48 gamer.
Also in the AHL there is more practice time in between games which is what he needs
He will probably be back up in 10-14 days once he is back to full speed.
