All this is, is injury insurance and rewarding players from the farm, people! You can't just risk going into the playoffs without any reserves skating. What happens if by the third or fourth round, you have lost four roster guys and have no regular "healthy scratched players" to replace them all? Are you just going to call a kid up from the AHL who has been on holidays and hasn't been on skates for the past 3 weeks? This is just to have some back up bodies skating and learning the system just in case they are called upon, and to give the kids a taste of life in the big leagues.
Also, Collberg, Hudon, and Kristo were not "called up" because they have not adjusted to pro hockey yet. They all have played less than 10 games for the Bulldogs, which isn't enough to warrant a call up. It doesn't mean that they aren't good enough or aren't part of our future, it just means that they aren't ready yet and other players are.
Collberg and Hudon don't have any contracts... Kristo, its a mystery.
You have work to do, young lad.
This is HF, everything the light touches is trolled.
