Teams tend to take varying approaches. Some opt to season prospects with more junior, college and AHL experience, while others will throw them directly to the proverbial wolves out of sheer necessity or sheer stupidity – take your pick.
Occasionally a player is just flat-out ready to step in and contribute right away; leaving management no choice but to play him.
This is an especially salient topic now, with NHL training camps on the verge of opening.
As poolies, we always want to be on the cutting edge of which guys are set to break out; whether they’re entering their first year in the league or they’ve been finding their stride for the past few seasons in the pros and are now ready to make that next step.
