Nothing against him, just after a poor year not becoming of a #10 (or 11, whichever it was) overall pick some are being realistic.

He definitely would have to make some massive offseason improvement to have a shot at the big club this year - a more realistic prediction is he'll fit in on the second or third pairing in Rochester and hopefully get some seasoning there that allows him to someday be the top pairing NHL D he was projected as.
