I can't stand it when people bring up the development nonsense. This team spends a ton of time/money on player development and if a player never develops, then the player simply never had it to begin with. Guys like Ryan, Wilkie, Bilodeau, Chouinard simply couldn't skate. Fischer has the intellect of a bag of hammers and was the running joke at the draft combine.

Short of a trip to the Wizard of Oz, there wasn't any hope in developing any of these players.

Fischer = Straw Man (No brain)
Latendresse = Tin Man (No heart)
Chouinard = Lion (No courage)
Ribeiro = Dorothy (You know why)
Perezhogin = Toto........The Wicked Witch (KHL) took him away.
