There have been tons of guys over the years who we can look back at and say they were brought up way too early and it hurt their development. How many times have we said a player was in juniors too long and it hurt his development? Not many.
honestly id much rather see him playing lots of minutes and maybe send him back with a detailed training regimen but i think it would be really bad for him to stay up here. hes getting bodied off pucks and wont see the offensive side much at all. if hes going to be more than a depth player he needs more playing time. its a shame he cant play in the A
