It's obvious the organization is trying to speed up his development as much as possible with the minutes he's receiving in Hartford, but in his very limited time in the NHL, he's shown he's still a ways away. And even if he isn't a ways away, what is his upside?

To this point, he's been a massive disappointment as a top 10 pick. Sure, it's still far too early to close the book on him, especially considering his injuries, but if you were told at the time he was drafted that this is where he'd be right now, nobody would want to go ahead with that pick.
Your forgetting he had a horrible knee injury to end the season last yr and fell behind?
