I don't know about this.

My worry is that Zibanejad may revert back to the SEL style rather than the NHL style, come back to camp and have the same issues. Is it his footspeed? No. Is it the phsyicality? No, he was playing like a man. Is it his positional play? All young players struggle but he was quite good, even blocked a critical shot last night. Is it his shot? No. Is it the speed of the game? Yes. So how does going back to SEL help him there?

On the other hand, it will give him time to work on his game, the finesse aspect. Work on his skill. I did notice that we trying to get rid of the puck more than trying to score.

I was hoping he would play 50 under the sens eye, play the World Juniors, be developed slowly like Seguin for the bruins last year.

it is not the end of the world. I think I am just greedy and wanted him now, but I suppose he will come back to camp with Silvferberg and who knows, maybe an instant duo!
