Historical precedent. It's hard to find NHL top 9'ers who weren't at least top AHL'ers on their teams at 23 year old.

If Quailer is being outplayed by 20 year olds, is it reasonable to expect he is going to catch up? Younger players generally have more development ahead before they reach their ceilings.
