I doubt that it's an effort problem -- more like standard second year jitters, where what you were doing as a rookie doesn't always work and what you need to do next to lift your game isn't clear. But -- last year in the playoffs Jean Beliveau picked this kid out as having a bright , bright future. We're going to give up on him in late November of the next season? Of course, sitting him doesn't mean giving up on him but -- either you think he's capable of working it out, in which case you play him until he does, or you don't think he's capable of working it out, in which case you need to find another option. Punishing him for playing poorly is about the worst plan you can have.
