I agree with this. There's a difference between saying "he will put up more numbers than Toews" than "he could" or "he very well may".

In my mind...

1. Talent is always relative
2. There will always be superstars

Therefore we will always have a superstar player and there will usually be about 10-15 guys drafted every 5 years that are incredible talents.

EDIT: I just realized that I really didn't respond to your post directly. My bad. But yeah there's a big difference between a 16 year old and a 24 year old though.
