This is a kid with some offense who is asked to be more of a checker during 5-on-5, and is currently the best guy (in the farm) to be able do that and give you some offense. It remains to be seen if it translates to the NHL, but to think that an AHL ppg player being given a chance to contribute offensively is "nepotism" makes no sense.
I am more than willing to see him get his shot and I hpe he succeeds. My point is that the whole thing is so not Claude. He's never simply handed anyone anything the way he has in this case.
