Yeah, but from what I remember, the Oilers were more than happy to bring him along slowly. At no time do I remember him being rushed in to any role, nor do I remember anyone expecting him to be the saviour of the organization.

If he got it I would expect him to say something along the lines of "I'm going to try my hardest to earn a spot in Atlanta" and not... "They said they were going to give me every opportunity to make the club"
