Can you give him more time that a shortened season to adjust to a new game? He had the same problem adjusting to college in his freshman year.
And before you jump all over his AHL production, yes, it was pretty bad. But again, it's a new kind of game. Let him adjust.
True, but from all accounts (Beacon -AHL Reviews) and his actual NHL play, he's nowhere near ready for Pro Hockey imo. I think if you draft a 3rd liner with the 19th pick, you've done good. Nothing to be ashamed of. I just think he is very similar to Paajarvi, scouts raveled about his speed, size and shot, but like Kreider, he is missing the creativity and tenacity. If you give Ryan Callahan Kreider's tools, he'd be a star player in this league.
