The Heat did the same thing in 09/10 with Irving, Shantz and Keetley. This is on no way a slight against Ortio, it's simply to get him on the ice.

I wouldn't be shocked to see him recalled for one of the 3 games in 3 nights the Heat have this weekend. My guess is Ortio starts in Alaska friday, they swap back Saturday and Ortio starts Sunday vs. Texas after Berra starts Fri and Sat vs. the Barons.
This was my guess when I saw the posts above. They want Ortio starting.

And besides, if this is the system they used to develop Irving, Shantz and Keetley, we really have nothing to worry about.
