Guys like Nyquivst dominate when they step onto AHL ice... Not Arcobello. Heck, Dawes was a monster in the AHL playoffs a few years ago and still cant find a NHL gig. Keller and Potulny did pretty well too and both can't either.
most people are not expecting much, but some are defending him from the people who are making judgements on a kids first, and only, NHL game. come on, the OP is calling him the worst NHL player EVER. hyperbole or not, thats just too much.

The AHL is pretty much tied with the Swedish elite league and the KHL for producing NHL level talent. Rajala and Acrobelle are our two best AHL forwards talent wise. They are dominating the AHL level. The only thing keeping either of them from a NHL roster spot in the future is size really. For every Martin St. Louis there are a 100 Rajala's or Arcobelle's but you never know who can and will rise to the NHL. They need a chance to see if they can transition their game to the NHL... More than a game anyways.
