I think this is a good thing. Oleksiak looked a little tentative and overwhelmed up in Dallas (not horrible but it was there) but when I was watching him in Texas this last weekend he looked completely confident and was back to moving the puck quite well.
Hopefully this means Dallas knows he needs a little more time and isn't rushing him.
I don't know we overlooked it. When Reilly Smith went down, they said it was because he needed to play more than 4th line minutes. That's why he came back as soon as Whitney went down.
With Oleksiak, they said they wanted him to get more time in the AHL. I know I did, and I expect others did as well, expected to see Jordie coming up.
