What does being 17 have to do with anything?

He won't outwork or overpower guys from his own age group and you think he'll suddenly start battling like crazy and going into traffic against bigger, stronger and older players?

If he had a weak wrist shot or was too skinny then yeah, that's something age and maturity will fix, but guys that are scared and lack drive in junior don't usually turn into brave and gritty players in the pros.
