Considering he's a first year pro and we've got depth players there was no point in keeping him up here. Have him in a scoring role where he can work on getting his hands and head a little quicker so he can finish those plays. He's not that far off.
Right on..finding his game to be like that of Chris Kreider's in New York(recently sent down to Connecticut) Physical tools are all there just can't quite put it together yet..
Coyle will be a very solid top 6 power forward in this league. Let him finish out the year in Houston and learn to produce consistently in the pro's then bring him up when Bouchard/Cullen are out of town.
