It was bound to happen sooner or later, but the kid had an excellent stretch when he was initially called up. To me, he demonstrated that despite his size, he can play in the NHL and be productive. As it goes with many mid-season call-ups, he lost some confidence and his game hit the skids. Combine that with Tortorella's inexplicable love-affair with Erik Christensen, and it just makes more sense for him to head back to Hartford.

Not surprised to see the naysayers coming out of the woodwork with their "I told you so's." That's just asinine at this point.
