Well i dont think he was a finished product by any stretch but the tools were all there and they were there enough that he easily could have made it with a team that had a clue.

Having said that 18 was just too young and i am convinced the next labor agreement has to change a little.

I think Manny could have stayed in junior another year but for someone like Blackburn i think he should be allowed to play in the AHL at 18.

He had nothing left to do in juniors but probably shouldnt have been in the NHL. It's like a kid graduated high school and having two choices, stay in the high school or go to a law firm. you need a middle ground.
