I reread your original post and figured that's what you were insinuating - more on Ruff and his mishandlings. Thanks for additional clarification.

I'd hate to see it, too, but I have to think a kid like that would be given a lot of leeway, a long leash, and almost "coddled" to an extent since he is, quite frankly, a prospect we haven't had under Ruff.

Last elite prospect Ruff had was Vanek, and he's a goal scoring winger. This is a playmaking center with lots of gifts talent wise and a talent we don't see often in terms of elite possibilities.
