I'd definitely love to see him turn into the beast he was supposed to be. (And I suppose he still could considering he's only 24). Someone said Shea Weber is what Erik should've been. I suppose there's still time for that and would certainly LOVE to see that happen. If it does the Avs have scary potential. Again I keep holding out that he'll put it all together after all Lidstrom wasn't the Lidstrom we know till he was what 26/27 years old? Keith won his first Norries at 26/27. Chara didn't become a beast himself until his late 20's and really once he got the Bruins (change of scenery, ect.).
