MPS is only 21. On most teams, now would be the time to take the next step. He was pretty rushed in due to a very poor Oilers team in 10/11, and now he's back to square one because he wasn't eased in. Just because you're a first round pick doesn't mean you have to make immediate impact, but so it goes when you expect prospects to actually lead your team. Exciting at first yes, but eventually things crash land because they're not ready to do so.

Del Zotto is a perfect comparison who was somewhat rushed in, then crashed and spent time last year in the AHL, only to get on track this season. Ask Rangers fans what they thought of MDZ after last season, and it's very similar to what Oilers fans feel towards MPS now. MPS will get back on track eventually, just let it take its natural course and don't force it.
