I hope he can turn things around for himself personally.
I think you have to look at the entire body of work to evaluate the player. Although I did not watch the series it seems to me it is pretty incomprehensible to pin the entire playoff collapse on Biggs only? This team boasted quite a few top players like Laughton, Lessio, Jenner, etc. How were they?

Did Biggs improve from the beginning of the year to end? Based on comments I have seen from the Leafs Director of Player Development, they were happy with his progress this season.

Biggs won't be the first or last top prospect to ***** the bed in the playoffs....it happens.
