So much for people who thought that Pac was NHL-ready and should had stayed at NHL level and Latendresse should had been sent down to the minors !
He might be ready in 40 games, or even next season. But he is not right now. It is pro hockey and he's gonna have to play more than 35 games a year.
I hate to say I told you so...
In all seriousness, it's not uncommon for young players to struggle a bit after the disapointment of being sent down. I think Max will be fine, he just needs to get used to the league and pro life. He has all the tools and even if he needs 2 years AHL, we still have D'Angostini and Chipchura knocking at the door.
