This is the only thing about him I question. Putting him in the NHL in front of what is honestly a pretty bad defensive team, isn't likely going to improve that. Neither will sitting him on the bench behind Kipper.

Abbotsford is where he should be. The Flames management just needs to get a bit more involved with the affiliate, and get them to focus on playing a similar system, while giving youth the ice-time. Have Brust support him, not the other way around.

Once this team adjust to Hartleys system, and starts to improve, THEN give Irving a chance.
