I'd like to see him get more minutes than he's getting. He's proving he's not a defensive liability out there (usually the thing that gets rookies limited minutes), and he's one of the better skilled guys offensively.

Only way I want him back in WBS is if Shero goes all-in at the trade deadline and acquires two top six wingers, forcing a guy like Dupuis to drop down onto the third line, and forcing a guy like Bennett out of a spot this year.
I feel he could be one of those top 6 wingers and fit just fine on the 2nd line. His abilities are being wasted on the 3rd line by playing with TK. Like someone else said, on the 3rd line he'll just end up being the next Morozov
