However, we've done well with players like Kesler, Burrows, Hansen etc proving their worth and then moving up the lineup. Raymond last year is another good example. Heck, even the Sedins who were top draft picks started out on the third line. I like the fact that nothing gets handed to our young players.
The point being made is that he would've been more in a 'position to succeed' on the 2nd unit than he was on the 1st on the point. Just because you get put out there on the 1st unit doesn't automatically mean you're being put in a position to succeed.

Hell, he would've been more in a position to succeed with no PP time because then nobody would actually criticize him for not producing on a PP where nobody else was producing either.
