One word : patience

Something fans don't have a lot of. Wiercioch is only 21 y/o and D-men takes longer to develop

This guy was always going to be a long-term project and the Sens brass are fully aware of it, unlike the fans. The guy left College when he had 2 years left to do, years that he spent in the AHL/NHL. IMO, that's good for his development

I think he plays around 10 games in the NHL this year and become a regular next year. What he needs to do is really improve his overall strenght and put on some weight. All things will fall into place after that. And the fact that he is going to be in the hands of Richardson could be really good for him

Worse case scenario for him is he becomes a 3rd pairing offensive D-man in the NHL, the guy has a NHL skillet, just need to grow into his body and learn how to trust his instincts more.
