should have been obvious.

Rookies making the NHL does not mean they will produce at the same rate of the players they're replacing right off the bat, rookie D who make it at 19/20 and have an immediate impact (like in our case, being Markov replacement) are of the Doughty, Pietrangelo, Hamilton type, The others slowly stars and become solid at 25+, same for forwards, unless they have star potential they will start slowly... sometimes you'll get lucky and have a rookie with 3rd line potential come off the gate and get lots of point, but luck isnt a plan...
