I like Oleksiak, and I think that he would've been fine staying in Dallas for the rest of the season & his career. But I think that big picture, what the Stars did with him is correct.
My theory is this.. If you have top prospects that are working hard & playing well in the AHL, bring them up for a short stint to give them exposure to the NHL game, then send them back to work on things in the AHL.
Once they see the speed & strength of NHL'ers, the AHL game will seem easier for them to play and they should make bigger strides in their development than they would had they not gotten that little taste of the NHL.
I think that this approach should be used for pretty much all of the prospects and should be done regardless of where the NHL club is in the standings.
