where he can get some quality icetime.
All you guys who dont think he wont get sent down could be in for a surprise.
I don't think he can get quality icetime in junior. Playing against kids isn't going to do him any good at this point. He needs to adjust to a speedier game, and he needs to work on his defensive awareness, both of which he can do on the Habs 4th line.
And he's definitely not ready to get more than 10min a game. But give him half a season on the 4th, and he might be. Ryder and Higgins both started out playing sparingly on the 4th line, and they turned out fine.
