Ferland needs some seasoning in the AHL given his limited skills. Maybe a year or two. He could become he good 3rd/4th liner but not right now. It's too soon for him.
I completely agree with you, but you have to wonder how come he's stil up here, I mean with Higgins, Perezhogin, and Plekanec these are all high draft picks (Plekanec a 3rd round but still pretty high) and I can understand the extended look, but Ferland was drafted in the 5th round and usually those players are sent down much earlier, he might be part of the immediate plans for the team given our lack of size up front, but I doubt he'll make the team, but he'll definately be a player to keep an eye on.
