He'll be in the AHL next season. Let's see how he performs then.
I don't think it's anything physical that's holding him back; rather, I think he's too slow mentally. He's just a "step" slow making decisions. I don't know, he could turn it around I guess, but I've never seen anything from him that to me screams legitimate talent.


It's just pain.
