It's short sighted to say a young player can't improve...but when you've seen the same kid not improve anything for several years since leaving juniors, you've got to wonder.

I also had the painful experience of watching Bogosian live many many many times. He has truly been one of the worst defencemen in the NHL. A handful of good games a year, that's it - the rest is horrible. And we're talking about standing out as horrible on a team that is already just about the worst defensive team in the league.
Funny you should mention Chelios. Hes be an interesting choice as an assistant coach, and an absolutely fantastic trainer if he could even impart a 10th of what he knows about keeping in shape.
