Subban was special in that he only needed one year in the AHL. dman like that are rare.

Komisarek was 23 before he was a full time NHLer, same thing with Josh Gorges. Markov was 22.
I think a big difference is that Dryden included his opinion that Tinordi doesn't get much PK time for the Knights. I didn't see Whitesnake saying that.

Everyone who has seen the Knights this year has been disagreeing with this. I have seen the Knights play 6 times and Tinordi was on the first PK unit. This makes it hard to give much credit to Dryden's other opinions about Tinordi.
