There are many, many examples of players who came into the league at a young age and struggled early in their careers only to blossom later on.

A myth created and perpetuated by fans and the media.
Pierre Maguire had a pretty good point this morning on the team, was it the 07 Draft with Eller, he said to have a look and see how many guys from that year have been traded already, is reasoning was the pressure on these kids at too young an age.
