Why waste a year of his entry level contract?
Consider his streaky scoring in the AHL.

We’re spoiled with awood’s youtube page.  Zadina GR highlights.  Half hour of good stuff from awood.

He might learn more at this point playing 9 (not 10) games with the Wings, if he is not close to being ready back to GR.

watching him live a few times while he was with the Wings tells me he is more a Wing than a Griffins. Some players fit better with talented players…he is one of those..

Yeah, he should make the team based on merit, obviously.

If he DOESN’T though, that’s got to be a big red flag.

Unless he’s blowing the doors off in the preseason, another stint in GR wont’ hurt him, the team, or his contract status.

Giving only one him one year to prove himself works in a GM’s favor when it come to negotiatiing a new contract but is that best for the team in the long run?
