Really? Because last year, they used him in a 2nd pairing/offensive only role.... while giving the heavy lifting to Sekera defensively.

He was 3rd in ES ice time

He was 5th in Quality of Competition

Call me crazy... but giving a 21 yr old, a loaded long term contract is clearly a contract the player is meant to grow into...
