That just suggests to me you didn't see much of him prior to the AHL. The majority of objective observers who saw him recognized there was going to be an adjustment period. We pretty much all said that he was dominating the CHL primarily because he was bigger, stronger, and faster, and that this game wouldn't transition to the professional leagues. This isn't a surprise. It doesn't make him less of a prospect. It just means he's following the expected development path.

Edit: Expecting a complete turnaround in his game after only six games is pretty unfair to him. If he's at the same place a few months from now, that's something different, but to say he's less of a prospect now because of six games?
