From a asset management POV it makes zero sense to keep these players in the NHL during an NHL shortened season. If you're going to burn a year of their ELC, do so when you'll get a full year of their services. The players are getting only 1/2 a season's exposure to the NHL, and their teams are losing a full year of services. The only issue would be explaining that to the players (especially those who can play at this level) that you need to send them back.
assett management isnt much of a concern for either team. Both owners have deep pockets and strong markets. And Boston is going for the cup, so its all hands on deck in Boston
