We don't EXPECT him to not get shelled.
So far he doesn't.
He has amazing numbers.
It's only preseason, yes, buyt when you face Boston's first line and you don't get shelled, why would he get shelled in his first NHL games either?
Until he gets beaten badly, why would we make the assumption he's going to get burnt?
He has to prove he's not up to the task before we make that conclusion for him.
And he'll know that he was send back for hockey purposes and work on his game, not for "age" purposes.
