PHX seems very system oriented and as much as I hope he succeeds, I think the odds are stacked against him.

Good luck GB, you'll likely need it.
I'll explain it for you. He was rushed into the NHL when he joined Columbus and he still wasn't NHL ready when he joined Edmonton. When Edmonton picked him up they should have buried his ass in the minors. He had elite 2nd line center written all over him when he was drafted.
