This just out...
Coilaiciovo is over-rated by many Leafs boosters on this board..
IfSpezza needs a year or two in the AHL, or if Boumeister enters the NHL early to have a couple of midocre at best seasons on a pathetic team, or the same for Pronger, or Iafrate is ruined because of his early start ---
#1 - Spezza didn't necessarily NEED time in the AHL; every time he was recalled he did very well. Ottawa just had lots of depth and thought it was better for him to play on the top line in the A than the 3rd/4th line in the NHL
#2 - Bouwmeester had an excellent season last year.
#3 - Iafrate's career was ruined because of booze and injuries...not sure how that relates to starting his career early.
#4 - If all these players are so much more talented than Carlo is, why use them as comparisons?
If he's READY, he's READY.
