Whether or not Chiarelli drafted him with that in mind, I think the games he played in the NHL matter a lot more than those in the AHL...
I must have been sick that shift, but when exactly has this ever happened?

The only thing he's shown on the NHL level is that his play has been inconsistent to this point. He's been handed a position multiple times and he actually lost his spot last year to Pouliot, FFS. That is pretty far from proving it on the NHL level, IMO.
