What does that matter? If there are six+ better players in front of him, he's down in the A. I'm also pretty sure he was only on an AHL contract until later I the season, no?
He had an abnormally good playoff, yes. But odds are a player returns back to their career average. Regression to the mean is more likely than him suddenly becoming a hidden talent. Arguably because of his playoff run he also has higher than expected trade value now...
