I still think he'll put it together one day and become a fantastic second liner, but it's just as possible he won't.

I love Arty, and he's the piece in the Nash trade i'll miss the most, but I wouldn't use his AHL scoring to say CK or JTM can't do what he did with the NYR just yet.
You're probably right, but he was thrown under the bus as soon as he was called up. Playing him with goons to start his NHL career was a travesty for such an intriguing prospect like Anisimov at the time. If Miller or Kreider started their careers playing with garbage as linemates, people here would demand Torts to be roasted over the coals.
