Can be as hopeful as you like, it doesnt defer the fact that he has only one good season as a 19 year old in the OHL. Not a selling point in my book for so much hype.
C'mon guys and gals. He has already scored more goals than last year in half a season, is a plus player as opposed to last year, and even with these recalls, he's still on pace to beat all his totals in the AHL from last year (assists, PIMS, shots, etc). That's progress.

He did fine in a limited NHL role and obviously he still has a lot to work on. He's only 20. Patience, patience, patience.....
