Ya, and as C58 alludes to as well, Larry needed some serious grooming, which he received of course in Nova Scotia & with the Habs themselves. It took him a few seasons, ascending progressively, time & patience. Unlikely he'd have been given that time nor really did the conditions even exist elsewhere conducive to nurturing his eventual All Star status.
