Barring legitimate attitude/insubordination issues, you never give up on talent,
and as a fan of the Panthers since Day 1 vs. the 'hawks, I should now.
Talent doesn't trump everything. Sometimes you trade talent for grit, tenacity and work ethic. I liked Shirokov and thought he was a fairly talented guy but obviously his talent level isn't so high that you can't give up on it, otherwise he'd already be in the NHL at this point.
