I was disappointed...

that he wasn't tearing things up in Hartford when down there. I remember him being sent down and having a productive first couple games, but tailed off considerably and had no points in the playoffs (albeit in two games, but if you're a top two liner in the NHL, I'd expect production in almost every game...especially in the playoffs).

Personally, I think the left side fits him better and I liked what I saw with him on Mess' left last season. It's got to be a bit tough on the kid to go from center, to left wing (on a scoring line) to right wing (on a checking line). It's almost as if Sather wants to keep him around because he's young and isn't a libaility, but doesn't want him to get meaningful minutes and is plugging him here and there.

I would like to see him on Mess' left again though.
