I didn't get to watch much of the CHI game so I'm not sure what happened there. Other than that he has given the Oilers a chance to win on most nights, even stole a few games for them. That's pretty impressive considering how anemic their offense has been this season.

The guy has all the tools to be a #1 and has been getting more consistent as he gets more experience. It is way too early to give up on him.
Ideally you're right. It would be too early to give up on him. But ideally he'd be getting paid 1 million playing behind a true starter. They just gave him the reins and then gave him Nikolai mcgroin, so there isn even any help.
