Is getting thrown to the wolves with the Jackets better for his development? No one can say at this point, but I don't think he's in a bad situation ... it's not like the locker room in Everett is sour or anything, they are just a young team. He'll have every chance to excel and show off his leadership skills with Everett, so I certainly don't think it's a bad thing.

If there is a camp, I think he gets a shot ... but if I'm not mistaken, the league has put some kind of a restriction on when the teams will be able to bring players up from junior if it's this year, so if the lockout drags on for too long, he won't have that chance anyhow. This is why he and his agent didn't want the Jackets to send him back to Everett in the first place. I think he should be playing hockey right now, so the Jackets made the right move.
