thats not my point. my point was addressing the fact that you said it makes sense because, "Bringing up Frazee gets him a few games of an NHL pay check, which is a great reward for a guy." that pay check should not even be in the discussion.
“It’s very simplistic,” Lamoriello said in explaining that move. “They’ve both played equally well and we took Kinkaid up (first). Jeff had a great weekend (with Albany). We had three games. We got five out of six points. Jeff got four points and (Maxime) Clermont got the other (point). Jeff deserved to be here. Kinkaid did fine, but they’ve been equal. Kinkaid got his feet wet as far as being around with the experience and this was our plan all along.”
There ya go. They wanted each of them to have a chance to be around an NHL team. It wasn't for the pay, but it was for the experience.
They did the same switch with Clermont and Kinkaid, sending Clermont back to the ECHL and calling Wedge to Albany.
