For what it's worth, this is what he played like in his most recent Hartford stint. He was the only player down there that truly looked ready to take the next step. He's finally comfortable and confident.

The 2012 playoffs might have been the worst thing for the kid. It made him appear farther along developmentally than he was, and probably established unrealistic expectations. Most kids require some real seasoning before they're ready.

Sometimes it seems like he's been around forever. It's important to remember that he's 22 and has played 27 regular season games.
