Is it really when you think about it for a sec?

1. Sacco is under pressure to start winning games. When he put them together we were behind one goal so maybe he is just trying to put together a more offensive D pair to create more offense, and

2. It gives the Avs a chance to see how Barrie reacts to playing with somebody else than Hejda. Can Barrie have chemistry with somebody else or does he feel comfortable only with Hejda?

If it was for reason #2, I'd say Barrie reacted very well to the situation.
