All season, we've been speculating on which call-ups might have to do with showcasing for trades. The circumstances and late season timing of this one might again cause that kind of speculation.

My guess? Dykhuis could fit into a 3rd pairing on three quarters of the lineups in the league, and a 2nd pairing on at least a couple of teams that are borderline playoff contenders.
My guess is that he didnt want Beauchemin in the stands for too long since he is younger than Dykhuis. Better he play more in the AHL. It doesnt really matter if Dykhuis is in the stands or not. But hey maybe i'm wrong too.
