I don't believe in rushing prospects, for sure, but especially Kabanov. He's got real enthusiasm for the game and a lot of potential, but we won't be an effective NHL player unless he gets stronger and learns to play different.
I agree. Also, the shorter game schedule will make it easier to bulk up, and playing against men will help give him incentive to do so.
