Other leagues are only important if a player hasn't played in the NHL yet.

We still see potential in Rakhshani, Anders Lee and Jesse Joensuu because they had (are having) success in other leagues, even though they have failed in the NHL so far, even though they are older than Bailey.

We have Strome and Nelson who are already pushing out Okposo and Bailey. Wasn't Nino supposed to get Parenteau pushed aside last year?

Nino went from "outgrowing the CHL", to a bust, to an elite prospect all before the age of twenty.

Isles fans are a special group.
