Honestly he couldn't even "shine" with good minutes in the AHL. I understand the power of motivation, but after three years, Avtsin should have understood he needed to perform in the minors first. I don't buy that he wasn't given opportunities by two (three?) different coaches.

It's sad, really, but hey, our late picks can't all turn into NHL regulars.
