The worst thing we can do is rush him or any other kid into situations that could damage their long term game.

I also agree that we aren't getting anywhere near enough for our touted vets. When Smyth got his 20th I thought that he might slow down, so far it looks like he has.
Actually it is Simmonds, Handzus and Poni that are letting down the Kings. The third line has been horrible all season with helping the offense. The top two lines have been pretty good this season. The 4th line has been chipping in enough too.

It's the third line and the PP that is costing the Kings the playoffs.
