He would have been getting the offensive minutes he needed to help develop that part of his game even further. It's clear the worst thing to do was let Lavi anywhere near him. Who would have known that then though? Like I said hindsight I guess.
He wasn't allowed in the AHL and I don't know how much more he could have improved his offensive game in juniors considering he dominated for 2 straight seasons. If they want offensive production out of him, they should play him with players capable of producing.
