He did tie for OHL scoring leader last year, so I don't see how repeating that makes his game anymore complete than it is now.
So now he gets to stay in nicer hotels and fly in big planes and gets great press box seats to NHL games.This does not make his game any better. Benching him for the 3rd last night does not make him better. Ice time, no matter where makes him better. Yes, dominating the OHL would make him better. He doesn't need help with his mental game. He needs help with his physical game. So some big minutes in the OHL would help condition him.He is only 19, not ready for the NHL, the Bruins are very good as is,so another year of 17-19 minutes a game and some goal scoring would have been better for him.
