Send him down and let him grow up a little.

Agree there. Stevens won't play him fairly, so it's best for him to play the whole year in the AHL. Stop jerking him around.

Yep, he's not playing loose out there. He knows nobody has confidence in him and you can see he's just preparing for the next mistake to happen and for his ass to be planted firmly on the bench.

He's been a go-to guy everywhere he's played. Now his coach basically despises him and hates playing him. It has to be tough on your focus and confidence.
