Call me a pessimist, but I'm not totally sold that they were doing this in the best interest of Jessiman.
1. Malhotra was rushed into the NHL at only 18 years of age, he could not be sent to AHL
2. Malhotra was a case where he played well, but just wasn't given any significant icetime, I don't think this would happen with Renney in charge.
