The real issue here is that he says he has no talent ("est-ce une question de talent? sans doute!). A lot of people doubted Pacioretty back then and it was ok because he struggled. But to go on and say that a 20 year old kid lacks talent is stupid. So many things can go wrong and it's often more a matter of confidence than anything else.

It just goes to show that we should be more patient and careful before writing off prospects and young players.

We could digg up some very funny quotes from Michel Villeneuve also who said that he would never be more than 3rd liner. The same thing they used to say about Plekanec back then...Will people ever learn?
