Aucoin signed a deal with a shot at the NHL (a better one than with the Caps), so it's not like he would have been easy to bring back to Hershey. And wasn't Bourque done with the org, again looking for an NHL shot? They turned him into a marginally useful asset, that's better than could have been done.

Besides, hasn't it always been Yingst's desire to only have ~1/3 of his roster be NHL prospects, 1/3 tweeners, and 1/3 AHL only guys? It's a framework the two sides appear to have been comfortable with, and has its ups and downs for both of them.
