He had an extended offseason to address his major weaknesses, and came back with no improvement in either. That's not a sign of someone developing into a NHLer of value.
Dude...he is 22 frikin years old! Not sure how that point is flying by your head. He was one of our leading scorers last year so I'd say he's an effective NHL player.

You're the type that would have traded Peter Bondra after back to back underwhelming 20 goal years.

Schoenfeld and the Caps also gave up on a young Jason Allison. How did that work out? Remember he was routinely in the doghouse during those years.
