At some point the Jets organization have to make their decision on what player he actually is and will become , not may become.

Two points in one game , then benched for the third in the next , in a 2-1 game where a very good 3C would be highly wanted is a sign of why he has not found favour with the Jets so far. Turnovers in the third period where you have a one goal lead isn't what you need or want and Noel acted on that.
Ok...but he is still a young kid that is only going to get better. This is only his third year in the league, and he probably could have used development in the minors before being called up.

Not everything is about points. And just because he's not on the scoreboard doesn't mean that he's not creating offense.

I think it would be a mistake to deal him now, before he's really blossomed as a player.
