He's probably my favorite player on the team and I absolutely hate how he has been handled here, this year or last. Just weird considering that he was a key return in a pretty big trade.
It looks even weirder when you consider the fact that he's one of the hardest and most consistent worker on the team but it seems like he's the guy that has to do the most to get rewarded for his hard work all while simultaneously being the one who gets the most easily punished for the tiniest mistake. At least, it's pretty telling of his character that he keeps on working and improving despite never getting the luxury of having the same wingers 3 games in row, sometimes getting switched from center to wing for no logical reason and never being given actual time to build up confidence.
Really weird how he's basically being set up to fail, especially considering how much we've done it it with other young players in the past and got burned. I'm begginning to wonder when we'll start hearing things about him being a cancer and how we had no choice but to trade him...too bad, he'll be a very good 2nd line center/1b center.
