I agree with you, but that's a part of his job. Coming in with the reputation as one of the toughest kids out of the 'Dub in recent memory, Dylan is going to have to make the rounds and take on all challengers until he cements his reputation in the minor pros. The same will undoubtedly occur at the NHL level as well in due time.

It just comes with the territory when you've got the job that Dylan does, and I'm sure his teammates appreciate what he brings to the table. Just as they do for Michael Haley, whose stepped up nearly as much as Prust did for the big league team last year, but only in half a season's time.
