If he's only tweaking his style in the AHL, instead of gaining precious experience in the NHL while we have the possibility to give him, I'm not thrilled with that decision.
Yes it's his defensive game that he needs to improve upon. Yes we have injuries but you take a big risk by rushing a guy. He just turned 21 a few weeks back, let him continue to find his way in the AHL, he's gotten good experience at the NHL level already but I'd rather see him work on his game in a less pressure filled environment instead of rushing him to the NHL and hoping it works out.
