Imagine how hard it is to judge how a 17 year old will develop physically, and mentally, and what his talent ceiling will be.

With Chouinard the Habs thought he ticked all the boxes, size, talent, NHL DNA... but he just never put it all together.

Still, I do not feel that bad for him, he still gets to play for a living. I have to pay to play.
Good post. Kudos to Chouinard for trying and for making a good living doing domething he loves, playing hockey. Wish we were all that "lucky" and committed.
