He gets the same icetime, and gets put in the same situations all the time... if you can't learn consistency in that scenario, how are you going to learn it playing 9 minutes one night, and 14 the next?
So your saying he won't benefit from learning from the players I mentioned? You're saying that he won't learn by following the example of Moreau or Staios who work hard every night, every shift. Sorry, I don't buy that. I 100% understand where you're coming from, but if he's not learning how to be consistent in the AHL, you see if he can learn it from NHLers he'll be going to war with. Again, no guarantees but for a 13th pick overall whom the Oilers have invested time and money in, I don't think a 20 game tryout is too much to ask.
