He's off working on his game with Brassard's summer trainer, and you have to think the focus is going to be on his speed game, and hopefully a whole hell of a lot of shooting off the pass. Why not give the kid an opportunity to prove himself after making more requested changes, instead of dealing him for first round picks (from a suggestively terrible draft) + mid range players?

This team has more than enough assets beyond a potential first line winger to deal for the defensemen they need.
I don't think he was instructed to drink chocolate milk shakes (or whatever ) and eat 3 meals a day at What-a-Burger....

Jake is a young guy that simply needs to grow up a little and commit to the NHL game. He's a potential PPG player in Phil Mickelson's body
