I'd arbitrarily put a timeline on him because he manages the puck poorly; I'm guessing that is exactly why he was in Noel's doghouse for parts of last year as NHL coaches put a premium on players that perform as instructed. NHL hockey is all about maintenance of possession. He won't be granted much more time to learn on the job I'm betting. He has lots of skill but the fact that he weighs but 175 pounds soaking wet and that he has been unable to manage the puck properly to date both work against him. Deciding to move in a different direction has exactly nothing to do with spite, FYI.
I think that was a product of his immaturity and the cure for that is time.
