Maybe. Maybe this year is a good intro to the NHL for him, and a good opportunity to get used to the defensive game without pressure to produce offensively just yet. He doesn't look out of place game to game, he's just not putting up points, perhaps in large part due to his line mates. Maybe next year, he'll already be comfortable with NHL defense and be able to try to break out and score some points. Wishful thinking? Probably, but I'm not sure him being up is a total waste.
