Which Bailey would you be speaking of? Cuz It can't be the Josh Bailey who plays for the Isles. He floats around and does nothing for 90% of the time.

Like Crosby?

I think people here need to realize that these prospects/teenagers which are touted as talent, NEED TO PLAY IN THE AHL FOR YEARS before they come to the NHL in order to be successful.

one year? Try THREE.

Isles mgmt is so dumb, they are ruining talent by bringing them up too early and letting them get mangled. This is the norm. Bailey is a perfect example.

Then you add the fact that they have no talent to play with, once they get here -- and the mistake is compounded.
