Like I wrote in the trade thread, he's about to play 10 times more games this year between the OHL+WJC+NHL than he did last year. I believe he's at 75 games played this year after playing 8 last year.

Not only that, but I don't think he's missed an optional practice, morning skate or practice yet since he's been up here either. Fatigue has to be a factor right now.
He seems to be a bit overwhelmed by the pace. He has the tendency to slow down play while deking and it let all the time in the world for the defenseman and forward to "lock him up". I think he coulf become deadly on the PP with more time and space. I think he will dominate one day but there are still some work to do. Especially in 1 on 1 situation.
