Sadly, since Philly is likely to keep him as a #7 or #8, he might be best off developing in another city. Young players only get better with experience. If Bartulis were in Florida, I think within a year or two he would morph into a nice #4.
This is the unfortunate effect of attempting to ice a competitive team every year. Some players whose play is not yet at the expected level get left in the dust. To think Patrick Sharp could be on this team right now...
