Right on.

Could he have been in Providence this year?

Sure. But I would say that it's telling that he was returned to junior given that Providence's head coach was the guy most involved with him during D-camp and the rookie portion of camp.

If Rob Murray green-lighted the move back to Vancouver this season, then it was probably for the best. Let him be a captain and continue to play on the top line there under Don Hay, rather be thrust into a role where he is expected to score when he may not yet quite be ready for that kind of an impact at the AHL level.

Providence isn't always the automatic answer for some of these guys, and I for one, don't have a single issue with it. Eric's bringing up of Wacey Rabbit is a good point.
