I'm not worried.

I actually think this year will be great for his development. I just think he let the amazing year he had last year go to his head. Not unexpected given his age. He'll learn that it takes more than one great season to get preferential treatment from the referees. He'll learn that with every great season you need to work even harder that off-season to replicate those results the following season.

Sure, there's been more than one occasion where I've shaken my head watching Drew throw a hissy fit on the ice. There's a fine line between on-ice passion and a detrimental tantrum. He's young. He'll learn how to toe that line with time. If he's still having issues in 5 years I may be worried. But then again, if he's putting up seasons like he did last year in that span, I probably won't care.
