Deslauriers has a higher ceiling, and while it's no secret around here I'm not his biggest fan, my reason for him staying in Manchester is this: I think he still needs to grow and learn at the AHL level before he gets a callup. Worried that a callup and a disasterous play in a game would ruin any confidence he's gained so far this year.

I'd much rather see Deslauriers brought along like Voinov and have a top level veteran to help ease him into the lineup like Voinov got with Mitchell. That just isn't an option right now with the Kings d-core.
