You can't treat your players strictly like it's a business, that's how you build bad blood. Sending Huby down would have been bush league. Plain and simple. Also, GMs want to win. Tallon isn't worried about Huby's ELC expiring in 3 years. Huby in this lineup makes it better.
Tallon has done nothing wrong as far as Shore's development is concerned. He played 3 years in college, and half a season in the AHL. He was sent down when we started getting bodies back from injury, but when Upshall went down he was recalled, and has been too good to send back. He is proving he's an NHL player right now.
Having these kids up doesn't hurt them. We may not make the playoffs, but I don't think we will be last in the league either. It's good for the future that they get some experience now. Do you want to bring all our kids up in the same year, without barely any experience? How good do you think we will be then? Not very.
