His inability to take his game to the next level (become a NHL regular) is because he hasn't been given the opportunity to take his game to the next level (become an NHL regular)?

So if he hasn't gotten a shot, but in your mind he's busted already?

So he failed the test before he took it?

Maroon's had one bad year in the AHL filled with injuries. Let's see what the rest of the season brings. No need to throw him under the bus right now.

Maroon's physicality and forechecking might make him better as a fourth liner than Holmstrom...

He's also pretty quick to drop the gloves to defend his teammates.
