Perception is a strange thing. A 24-25 y/o player who is dominating the AHL but hasn't cracked the NHL yet (like Rome last year) ends up carrying the 'bust' tag and is on the NHL scrapheap because he's been on the radar for years and hasn't broken through yet. But a 24-25 y/o guy who was a nothing prospect for years and finally does something at a much lower level at an advanced age is suddenly an 'exciting prospect'. It's weird.
That's a very good point.

Even Tyler Bozak has a 3.725 million dollar cap hit which next season is expected to count 100% towards the cap due to the fact that bonuses are likely going to count against the cap next season.

So now think about what you would expect a 3.725 million dollar player to produce and who knows whether or not Bozak can continue to do that next season. Sure he's having a great season right now but if next year he goes on to produce only 40 points is he worth his 3.725 million dollar cap hit??
