Wow that means Spezza's probably a bust, they should trade him right now before he becomes another Daigle.
Dont forget two years ago Markov played in the AHL, so did Komisarek, but are you panicking with them?? Are you afraid about Ryder and Ward too????
Its completly irrationnal to actually believe they'll make an impact right away. I agree with ax+ etc. that it shows what kind of people post here sometimes. I wanted to see Higgins and Perezhogin, but from what I saw up to now, I won't be disapointed if they start in the AHL. They undenyable top line talent, and its really more important to developp a player to be good in a few years then risk destroying him by bringing him too raw. Hockey talent isnt different then other talents, some people are close to their peaks early(Lemieux, Kovalchuck, Selanne, Kariya) and some with higher peaks start lower(Naslund, Bertuzzi, Kovalev, Murray, Lecavalier) and take more time , but its the end result that matters.
