Completely agreed. By no means is he a lock to be a player, but I think we are all guilty (myself included) of drawing way too many conclusions (about way too many things) from 30-40% of an AHL season that is completely skewed due to the uneven infusion of NHL talent.

Let's let things normalize and give them some time and then revisit.
