By all accounts he also performed rather poorly in his stint last year. This to me doesn't scream a player who is the most likely to make an impact in the NHL as you put it. Im not trying to say he wont amount to a solid contribitor at the NHL level but imo time is now starting to run out for him in this organization. He is at a point where he is at risk of being further passed on the depth chart by players coming up behind him. He really needs to make the jump this year and show that he has a future on this team, something he has yet to prove.
I do agree that it's now or never for Machacek but I think he has the tools to do it, and may have a perfect opportunity looking at the Jets forward depth ATM
