If he doesn't bring a tougher mental attitude into camp he will wither away in the AHL all season. If he plays pissed, I say he starts the season as the 4th line LW and opens the door for bigger and better things at the NHL level.
I was impressed with his game during the first 10-12 games and there was also a decent stretch when he played on a line with Kassian and...was it Ellis? I think that was the line, it was good for half a dozen games or so. But man, he's gotta bang some bodies and really want the puck more. That was sorely missing from his game even when he was playing well.
He might have played with Kass and Ellis, but I remember his 2nd best stretch being with Kassian and Leino. The 3 of them put together a few pretty goals.
