While the Isles always envisioned Bailey being the 2nd line center to Tavares (that seems to have changed with Strome being groomed for that role), he looked very good when moved to the wing at the end of last year. For now, Bailey looks to have a place as a top-6 winger with the hope that he finally establishes himself and he gets his 'I'm part of the core' long term contract from the Isles.

The kid has talent, we've seen flashes of utter brilliance from him... the problem being that he's been far too inconsistent. It's all about confidence with him, it's like night and day. He's still only 22 and despite his rocky start to his career, things are on the up and up for him.
