I beg to differ.
You say MDZ was given another year of development, but he went back to his junior team and never played in the AHL, which is an important step in the development of a young player that may not be ready for prime time....
See Derek Stepan, he comes in straight from college...
Much like Matt Gilroy, although alot older, straight from college...
While I agree that a few years ago we were taking our time and developing players right, unfortunately I think the organization realizes there is a shelf life on their franchise goalies and they are trying to get as many peices in place as fast as possible now.
I'm not saying that its a terrible thing, but anyone who watches MDZ, Gilroy and Stepan can probably admit they would benefit by some AHL time, if for no other reason to gain confidence and strength.
