In retrospect, they should have had him on a tighter leash, and this is a move that should've happened his first month away from Vanek and Pominville, not 50 games into the season.
Funny that two players we have been expecting the most from who have been demoted to Rochester recently have taken it so poorly. (Kassian and now Adam.)

Not that they didn't deserve it but we can all see there are others who are just as well qualified for a demotion who apparently are untouchable (helps when you own a fat contract I guess....).
