Honestly ... both Reilly Smith and Matt Fraser are, but I still think they could both spend a bit more time in the AHL. Fraser I'm not as certain about since they've never really given him a fair look, but Reilly looks like a different player in the NHL. He's an unmistakable presence on the ice in the AHL that looks dangerous every shift.
100% correct, and even more so for Morrow, Oleksiak, and Nemeth. When they don't have anything else to learn in the AHL they can come up, but I would rather have the move to the NHL be permanent rather than a yo-yo.
