Boucher also had a good 20 year old season in the AHL.
I've seen people say this is the do or die time for Boucher but I think some get a little impatient because they've heard his name for a bunch of years. This is only his 22 year old season coming up and even if Boucher ends up in the AHL again, I'd be pretty content about his future if he put up a solid season down there.
It gets magnified because he is the only forward prospect who came with a slightly higher billing into a prospect pool devoid of any similar players.
If we had two or three similar propspects he would get far less attention and unwarranted criticism.
