You can see the skill, but he's definitely got a bit of developing to do in the minors.
Valuable experience for him. He's got the jitters out of the way. Now he has a point of reference. He knows what he has to work on, what works at this level, what doesn't. He's been fairly good on draws. Needs more seasoning. Having seen him now at this level I'm more inclined believe the "not ready" yet talk you heard from the organization. The kid can play though. Not bad for a 20 year old. I would like to see Korpedo given a cup of coffee and let Straka take a blow. I admire Marty's playing through the injury, but he's a shell of his normal self. Korps could add some speed, grit and energy and at this time of the year with games piling up one after the other, younger legs could be worth some points.
