A first rounder should be able to make the #3 (of 11) team in CCHA as a regular, and anyone who says otherwise is refusing to see the truth.
Nobody is saying he's a bust, but having him in the stands isn't a great thing.
Not that Skjei is doing great, but you're comparing a forward to a defenseman. Defense is a much more restrictive position and on that requires a lot more mental and technical development. It's unfair to compare the two like that. In 9 out of 10 cases the defenseman is going to take longer to develop. It's definitely been a rough campaign for Brady but I'm not at all worried about his future right now.
