Gorges was no better at the same age, guess PG was ******** for extending him... and what to say about White, 3 years already, pfffff...
I don't see why you see the need to start pulling every other player's development in on the discussion. Each players profile and development is different. That is why just because he is young, a D and Swiss, he is not Mark Streit. He is Weber, and he was supposed to develop into a threat on the PP, be good in transition, and solid in his end. He has not been consistent at any of those.
But, if you must...
Subban is doing fine. Less on the score sheet than last year and that is why his turnovers seem bad, but still, he is holding down top minutes and the Habs have a great GAA.
Eller, is doing ok as a 3rd center. He is not top 2 material yet, but could become if the stars align.
DD, I totally admit to not having much faith in. But I can admit I was wrong on that one. He is playing very well.
Palushaj will not make it. He has not been a factor in any game yet.
The Gorges comparison is not holding any water. He was not slotted to solve the PP. He has developed into a PK specialist and a good overall D, as well as a leader on the team. The only similarity to Weber is that they both play D.
You think he needs MORE chances. I say he has had his shot.
