“We know what he’s done, we know what he’s capable of doing,” said Flyers GM Paul Holmgren. “I think more for Brayden’s own confidence it would’ve been nice to get in another game or two. I don’t think it really matters to us.”
When asked if he thinks the 20-year-old
is ready for a full season in the NHL
, Holmgren’s answer was simple.
“I believe he is.”
Of course "ready" doesn't mean "yes." I'm on the same page as you, I think he'll be sent down to the AHL to start the season and will come up for injuries.
