Thanks a lot but I'm stunned. Why would you stalled the development of a player like that? Seems to me that if it goes like you're saying, we should not expect the greatest progression out of this guy for another year though he'll be practicing and all but you can't compare that to actual games.

Should've stayed in the USHL if it's going to be like that.....or should have went to another college if he had the choice or wanted to.

I am far from the truth if I think that, right now, Pateryn seems like a poor-man's Mark Mitera? Tough, reliable, with some offensive but mostly a good defensive d-man?
