Some, we can see their greatness right away (Letang, Harrington), but most of them will need a lot of time.
Yeah but for every Engelland, who is only a bottom pairing Dman mind you, there's about 100 Lovejoys. Lovejoy is 28 years old by the way. I think that possiblity has long since passed. I agree guys need time especially on defense. At the same time if you're 24-25 and you haven't separated yourself, maybe you'll turn into something but I can't blame a GM for moving an asset like that.
