I know how people say Voynov shouldn't be the 7th dman and he would be better off getting all the ice time in the world in Manch, but sooner or later, he's gonna be on the team. He will have to adjust to not getting as much ice time; it's part of the learning curve - just ask Tyler Seguin and Jonathan Bernier! I'd rather have Voynov learning how to be an NHLer than dominating in the AHL again. It will be better for him in the long run to go through that tough stretch of not being "the guy." It happened to Bernier, and look at how he flourished in the second half of the year. If a guy is ready, he's ready. Logging ice time in Manch won't do squat to help his development, but being a part of the big club (even if he sits every other game), will.
