from Thesaurus.com:

Main Entry: prospect

Part of Speech: noun

Definition: outlook for future

Synonyms: anticipation, calculation, chance, contemplation, expectancy, expectation, forecast, future, hope, in the cards, irons in the fire, likelihood, odds, opening, plan, possibility, presumption, probability, promise, proposal, thought

All of the above underlines why Wiercioch is: a) not in the NHL full time, b) still has a lot of upside, and c) will be given time to fill out and develop.

The majority of d-men take a while to develop... they need time to develop the smarts required to take on the most creative and athletic players in the game, and to develop the 'man strength' that comes with age... regardless of working out, I became much, much stronger physically around 25, while staying the same height/weight as I was when I was 18.

Give him time and just let the kid have a game to see where he needs to get to in order to compete at the highest level.
