With Ritchie, we know he took major steps forward as a two-way forward because of it. I haven't seen any recent PA games so I don't know if Winther responded the same way.

The demotion, according to the articles I read, wasn't a punishment or anything. They just geared up for the playoffs, and they wanted to spread the talent.

He'll benefit next year from older guys moving on to pros ... specifically Chicago prospect McNeill.
