Sure, but thats sort of the story with most young players. I really think he'll excel when he's the primary focus.

Anyways, I'm in the minority here, I'm fine with that. It takes a few risky moves here and there to build a franchise. Boston traded Thornton, let Kessel walk.. they made out fine in the end. Philly had the guts to let their two franchise players go, they'll be fine as well.

Serge Savard used to roll the dice, it worked more often than not. PG just tries the safest route, and I don't agree with it.
