As for your second point. Tinordi is more ready than him. He's used to the tougher schedule and has been one of the best and most consistent player in a pitiful Hamilton team. If Bergevin were not to replace Bouillon next season, it's Tinordi's spot to lose.
I think you are both right in a way. It his difficult to compare Pateryn with Tinordi because Pateryn has played so little this year. Tinordi is younger and is more used to playing a longer schedule. He has arguably been the best defender but Pateryn hasn't been there to make a comparison. Pateryn is older but having played less may have more development upside to him than many think... in other words, he may be underrated as was posted.
