No where did I say he played bad. What was said is wait until he is in meaningful games. He was......and while he did play very well.....he did not bury his chances or make the players around him better.
I keep hearing about how clutch he will be in the playoffs, just like juniors. If he can't be clutch to stay in the play off race why would he in the playoffs. Stupid hypothetical, I get that. But I think you can see where I am coming from. He has had 6 VERY MEANINGFUL games and he has two assists in them.
Having said all of that, the Oilers will never trade him, nor should they. He is a great hockey player. Well, not unless they could get a #1 D-man and #1 Goalie for him.
