Best of luck to him, hopefully he sticks for you guys. He just wasn't going to do it on a team that's already on the small and soft side, and had blocked him with other young wingers. We couldn't give him real ice time, but we really couldn't shelter him either, and he showed no signs of knocking the door down or adapting his game to our needs. It just wasn't the right place for him here. It's entirely possible he goes out and finds a niche somewhere else.
FWIW, aside from the typical arguing over prospects and annual baseless speculation about conditioning coming into camp, I don't think anyone really had an issue with his personality or attitude. He seems like a good kid.
