He took a mature attitude, worked on his weaknesses, and has come into this season a completely different player mentally. If he was playing like last season I wouldn't bat an eye and still be in favor of trading him.
However, he is now playing two-way hockey...his defensive effort from his rookie season is visible, and he's playing a more cerebral game than ever before. This is the best he has been as an Avalanche and I like it. It's not as if I 'wanted to be right' -- I wanted him to prove me wrong, had lost hope, but luckily things have worked out for the best it seems. Still want a larger sample size but very, very pleased with his play so far.
I understand it's a short sample size but it's just a perfect example of how people on these boards prematurely jump to conclusions.
