We should know pretty soon...
I wouldn't really call what they did with Girgensons "slow cooking." The jump from the USHL to the AHL is arguably as big as the jump from the QMJHL to the NHL.

I think what they've shown in how they've handled those 2 guys is: 1) They want their prospects working with their coaches if at all possible; 2) they want their prospects playing against the highest level of competition they can handle.
