I would think Jets management would like to see his play develop into a solid 2nd line NHL level of play, and I say this considering he is being counted on in an offensive role with St. John's. If he was in a 3rd line role with the IceCaps, well this current production may be fine, but he's being asked to play an offensive role - with all the extra icetime and opportunities that comes with that - and he's not producing.
True but the entire team is not producing. should Alex be leading the way offensively....perhaps....but I think he is to a degree (chances) but it's just not showing up on the score sheet yet.
