I think that's what is called development. Forcing guys like Jake and Brass to top minutes right out of the chute hasn't panned out too well for us in the past, has it?

Let Joey have success and keep growing before we move him. I'd like to see him gain confidence with a string of good/great games before we feed him to the wolves. It's not like CBJ are cup contenders this year. Let's actually develop Joey, eh?
