I just want to see the right attitude. Claude will probably bench him at one point or another so it'll be interesting how he takes it. If he commits to getting better and he improves throughout the season, that's all you can ask.
He will be playing for Team Canada at the WJC and not on loan from the bruins ...... Way to much hype and pressure. Playing him in the NHL next year could really hurth this kid. Every year there a few 18 and 19 year old kids playing at very high levels in the NHL. All I am saying is that there may be a good chance that he is playing in the OHL next year. If he is dominant next week against the Islanders they we will have a good idea where this kid is at
Best to have no expectations from him and just watch to see what happens. He may or may not make the team. He also might not play a whole lot as in Thornton type of year. No need to put too much pressure on the kid. They have other prospects to take up his spot.
