You can probably count the players on 1 hand.
As its been pointing out too he is a kid whos learning the NHL game and had to deal with a coaching change 20-odd games in, which in turn caused him to learn a new system.
Its hard enough for players to learn a new system on the fly but when its a rookie it is a alot to ask.
He still is good defensively and can hold his own out there and by no means should be sent down. He isnt going to learn anything in the AHL.
I'm with ya. I'm criticizing the kid yes, but I don't dislike him, nor do I think he's being a detriment. He's just struggling as most players do, especially rookies.
