Finally in his last 2 call-ups he has started to figure things out when it comes to playing the game in the NHL. Now he needs to find the net, but he needs to earn his time. So, enough of the crap about him not getting a chance. It is just pure garbage.
See HOG's comment, below...

Just staring at how many times he's been called up vs watching the whole thing happen the last few years is different.

Also, I hate Craig Adams. He's a good guy, but Craig Adams the player...I have this intense hatred for him now.

I feel ashamed.
