To an extent.

It was a catch 22. He didn't get a ton of icetime BUT on the flip side he didn't really warrant any.

Right, wrong or indifferent it's hard to throw a kid out there over proven upper classman when he makes mental mistakes and gives the puck away.

He could use this year as a learning experience or it could be something that sets him back. Either way i think he sould have been better off waiting a year to enter the draft.

He has top six offensive potential {And isn't a horrible defensive player} but he's going to need to work hard, get stronger andgain confidence in his abilities.

Some scouts would argue he was overmatched, others could argue it was lack of confidence. Whatever the case, there is no reason why Pinneault shouldn't be a hobey baker contender {he has the skills}. It's a matter of whether or not he puts it together.
