I don't see how that can be. Do you see the talent and the raw ability that Bobrovsky has? It's up to the Flyers to point out the areas he needs to improve on and give him the methods and the teaching that he needs to correct those flaws. But it's completely up to the player to get there. I don't think you have to be a genius to see the talent that Bobrovsky has. It's entirely up to him at this point.

As an example look at a player like Nikolai Zherdev. He has all the physical talent in the World to be a top player in this League. Why isn't he? Are you telling me that's Columbus' fault?
