If you were looking at Leetch as a barometer of his play, of course you were going to be disappointed. He's doing pretty well considering he's a rookie. Being 25 doesn't mean you'll have a significantly easier time adjusting to the NHL.

People need to exercise patience. The expectations for our prospects is getting out of control. Too many people saw the Frozen Four final, and a couple preseason games and were ready to declare Gilroy the second coming of Brian Leetch. The same can be said about Grachev's rookie year in the OHL, and Stepan and Kreider's performances at the WJC's.
