I agree that he got a battlefield promotion to brevet second line center because of Hecht, but I think Adam had made a strong case for at least breaking camp with the team.
I don't disagree with you. But its a very different thing for a youngster to come in on a 2nd/3rd line shielded by a top line than being pushed onto that top line with our very best players. In that sense I think he was rushed. But in fairness to the Sabres they had no options at the time.
