What's disappointing with him wanting to develop at his own pace, one he's comfortable with, rather than trial by fire? Clearly he wasn't ready for a more advanced league.

The post includes a couple quotes: One from The Hockey News saying "Andersson was killing it on Farjstad’s junior squad with 9 goals and 17 points in 12 games, but only had one point in 18 games with the big club."

In an interview with Blueshirts United, Clark said of Andersson: "When the big goal or big play is needed, he's doing it..He practices a lot with the big team..They're doing the right thing letting him play a lot, letting him handle the puck a lot, let him play every power play, every 5 on 5, kill every penalty, that's what we would rather see than sitting on the bench with the big team and that's what they're doing and we're happy with that growth." Sounds like he's coming along just fine.
He is coming along just fine. I never said otherwise. All the reports from our Swedish posters and from the European stories that I saw indicated he was just fine in his limited ice time. For about 10 games he was even on the second pair. I was hoping he'd get more of an opportunity with his SHL team this season. So the fact that he's not getting that opportunity was somewhat disappointing to me.


It's just pain.
