Kid can't win with some people. The kid, I think is doing well. He's got the offensive tools. The question mark coming in I think was his defensive game in his own zone. He's proven, outside one bad mistake which, I think if it was anybody but Regehr, would've been on the tape, that he can become responsible.
If he wasn't reliable in his own end and was lighting up the scoreboard, I GUARANTEE people would be saying he still needs to go back the juniors. He's working his butt off and is playing well and is being responsible.
The lack of a true training camp really hurts him, as he has not had the time to form any chemistry outside of Leino and Ott. If and when he gets paired with better Offensive players, I think that is when his offensive game will shine.
He hasnt done anything that warrants him to be sent down, and I've seen improvement in HIS FIRST TWO GAMES IN HIS CAREER. Calm down, if RUFF hasn't benched him because of play, then he's doing something right.
