This will result in the yearly reply that he's only 20... 21... he's big and it will take longer for him to develope... he's not getting top line minutes ... he's taking power skating lessons next year... his GF is expecting a baby... the AHL would have done him no good because he's too good... his esteem was damaged after he was sent down after training camp... he just needs to get his timing down for checking... he looks Neely out there...

The kid needed to take some lumps in the AHL before the NHL and actually earn it. Just my .02 and, really, I hope he makes it over time but he's a joke out there right now.
He needs to play against NHL defenceman, battle them in the corners and understand the speed at the highest level. He will not learn anything in the AHL.
