I agree, some guys it is hard to tell but with guys like Turris and Toews you should be ready to cut your losses after a short stint.
Vanek won us a tilte as a freshmen. No one ever brings up his name really. He did what he was supposed to do. Had Skille or another top player stayed on any team, to go along with a Turris it makes a huge difference. So what do you do? Kessel was an obvious one and done guy. He and Potulny looked awsome on the PP together. We had a huge winning streak that year.
