How has McMillan looked this season? Only one point so far is underwhelming.
Certainly better than his stats indicate but it is a bit worrying that he hasn't produced much yet. He is very reliable defensively, great on the PK and his speed generates plenty of chances. Hopefully the points start to come.
No worries he'll get there, In this NHL you only get so many chances to "get there"/ Look at all the guy on this team who are older and didnt "get there" for very long, One thind the AHL does is show your strengths and expose your weakness. I see he is 21 going on 22, The ducks have a defenseman who is 18 going on 19,. He is already "there"
I agree with you in principal, but in actuality we're talking about a player who isn't even 10 games yet into the season, and who is a rookie in this league. There are going to be growing pains, and most of them are going to show up early. This is when we see how Vatanen adjusts.
