His biggest problem is, there's more questions about him today than there was two years ago. Is he sulking when he's in Manchester? Was he simply overrated? Have the Kings ruined him trying to change the way he plays?
Like I said before, good kid. He'll get a shot somewhere but he's not worth very much currently. In my opinion of course. It's tough to find a team that's going to give him a spot up the middle right now. Maybe a team like Detroit can take him, convince him to go to Grand Rapids and get that "it" out of him. It could be a style factor. That's why he'll get another chance. Just not at the expense of anything much.
I'm sure ur aware our ahl club (mancheaster) tries to play a defensive game first just like the kings club so his offensive numbers will be down as long as hes a king. He is trying to work on his defensive game while in the ahl. If hes placed in a offensive team his numbers will go up. Most king fans are not looking forward to him on another team as pointed out before we have gone down his road a few time boyle molson purcell (now hickey ) and soon lokti. Our prospect end up working out in other systems. The few ahl games i saw he was one of the best kings in the lineup althou i havnt seen many lately ( maybe some else can comment) He isnt sulking for sure. Again as far as him asking to be traded i think he did that along time ago its just taking this long to get out. King fans have seen alot of there propect gone for nothing so asking fair value isnt over rating him. I will say that if u dont rate him as high that is your choice but you shouldnt say we want to much if others are willing to offer it.
