Awesome. Will be interesting to see what the can do.
If the Flames were smart, they'd also give Nemsiz and Breen an cup of coffee up in the NHL this season to see what they can do. Both are in the last year of their contracts; the Flames should see what they can offer in the NHL before deciding whether or not to offer them new contracts.
I've only watched a few Heat games this year, but looking at his stats, he's horrible defensively. How is he ready for the NHL?
Happy to see him play though!
There is a reason you repeatedly hear things like:

Plus/Minus is a garbage stat

Max nearly from day 1 has been playing against other teams top players. From day 1 he has been one of their best penalty killers. Do you know what happens when a player on a low scoring team faces other teams top players? They get a minus rating. This is why people say such cliche things like:
He shows a lot of bottom 6 promise. Against the Canucks, he looked like a hard working kid. His stats are not indicative of his individual level of play (also the score just flattered the Canucks overall that game).
