I also think more teams are putting players who are still on their ELCs in the NHL due to cap reasons. The Cap era has accelerated player development, especially for 1st round picks.

I have no problem with the way Hickey and Teubert are progressing. If every pick turned into a star before 24, you would be out of cap space very quickly.
