It saves money because they'll be making AHL money instead of NHL money but I doubt it saves any cap space. Recall that they had to send Bodie down and place McLaren on LTIR to be able to call Bodie back up. That was because we were over the cap once Bodie was recalled but are allowed to go over because of McLaren on LTIR. Now with Fraser on LTIR we're allowed to go over even more, and thus can have Abbott and Devane on the roster. Sending them down doesn't save any cap money because we're still over the cap.
This is probably to get them into today's Marlies game, and get some ice time.
