Well, on the other hand, if yo want your youngsters (not only him) to learn from their mistakes and improve, you have to give them ice time - even when they arent doing very good. Dont think he learned all that much from the pressbox last season.
He does not have the skills to overcome the fact that he is the wrong fit for this team and how it is built.

He has some very good parts of his game, but it just is not enough to force anyone to give him that ice time. He needs to take it, he needs to leave no doubt. My opinion is he cannot.

Is it always going to be the "he did not get a chance" excuse?
