The guy just sucks honestly. Nothing really redeeming to his game. Such a waste of a 2nd round pick...ugh.

He was actually a brilliant prospect at one point, but I recall him getting a serious injury. He actually got a lot of hype on these boards, and if I remember correctly, some of the frequent posters thought he had a chance to jump right into the NHL when he finished his final year in the WHL.

Considering Wahl was traded to the Flyers organization mid-season, it's all rather moot.

I'm looking forward to seeing Monahan - yes, I think he makes the team.

I'm worried the Flames will keep Monahan on the big team so the rebuild is an easier sell. If we're going to be patient with a rebuild, we need to be patient with the players. Monahan will make no difference to this clubs fortunes in 2013/2014 so why jeopardize his development all the while burning a very valuable year of his ELC? Not to mention, there are plenty of guys like Knight, Horak, and Reinhart that could/should be given long looks at the 3rd line center position.

I'd be okay with a 9 game tryout similar to what Scheifele and Zibanejad got just so he gets a taste of the big leagues. After that, he needs to be back with the '67s.
Couldn't agree more. I'm a big believer in sending them back down, and keeping him with the big club won't mean much anyway-we're still gonna finish near the bottom. Looking forward to seeing Sven, Brodie, Ramo, and Knight.
