I think it's way too early to proclaim that Sauve doesn't have a "bright future." You're comparing him to Rome and Duco... 2 guys who are both older and don't appear to have more than fringe NHL potential. Neither one would be considered a prospect at this point. Sauve is 21 and going into (hopefully) his first full season in the AHL. He might be a few years away but he's young and the potential is there. We knew he was a bit of a project when we drafted him and the injury last year set him back further.
