Long story short, the Isles completely messed this up. He was to young to play in the AHL, so it was either NHL or WHL. Problem is, they somehow thought it would be a good idea to put him on a line supposed to be physical, next to bottom talented guys. Surprisingly, this isn't the best idea for an 18y old scorer. Consequence: not a lot of playing time and ****** stats. Then he started this year in the AHL and continued to 'dominate' non-NHL leagues, averaging 1pt/game. Surprise, the Isles messed up again: they didn't call him up for the camp. They selected guys clearly weaker than him, estimating that it was now finally time to give him enough games to develop.

In other words, they messed everything up.
