I realize he's not meshed with Noel at all and that's why he hasn't looked great, but I think the minuses and question mark completely overshadows the pluses at this stage.
He has regressed but the kid has all the tools to be a great player. He's probably not a good fit for the avs but if I'm a team like the devils id jump all over him he'll come cheap too. He's going to make the jets look dumb.
