And the only reason why he hasn't regressed is because quite frankly he had nothing to regress from.

I see so many excuses for almost all of our young players throughout HF. Some posters still insist that Nino is NHL ready. It sucks, but the reality is this team is NOT developing players properly. JT and Hamonic are the exceptions to the rule-not the norm. And JT would have developed well on any of the other 29 teams.
19 goals 52 points at 21 in in your second full year is generally considered impressive unless you live under a rock or something.

The reality is that this team hasn't signed any mobile d-men, plays a collapse style defense that hinders breakouts, and all its young players are forwards now being trapped in their own zone by their own defense.

The reality is that there is nothing wrong with Okposo, Nielsen, Tavares, Hamonic, Martin, and MacDonald is probably having a better year (ditto for the much beloved but still raw Hamonic) if he didn't get his PP time bumped.
