No, not at all, and certianly wasn't what I was implying nor was I trying to tout him.

Rather, my question is why would the organization, who likely put a great deal of thought into his development, elect to have him miss his final year of junior and turn pro, then just three games later, three games which on a purely statistical level look very good as well, elect to change their minds and send him back to junior?

Normal LA doesn't handle prospects like this, seems odd to me to see things play out that way.
