Having said that.....he lacked confidence. Like a couple of our youngsters we had this year. Nobody helped him getting it back either. Seems that we need in our roster for kids to take matters in their own hands. Don't wait for anybody to do it for you....you'll wait a very long time.
A normally coaching philosophy when dealt with a struggling youngster who has potential is to keep putting him in opportunities to succeed. Montréal's is to move him around, then 4th line, then bench.

If he comes back 100% and adds a little more muscle, should be a solid year for him.
