Yeah, I don't know what it is about people in the last few years, but the expected age to start producing consistently at the NHL level has gone down. The kid isn't off his ELC, to the best of my knowledge, he's already put up 2nd line points last year (like it or not), was once one of the better and more instinctive defensive players on the team (young David Legwand, right?), and he's playing for his third coach in his development years, which I'm sure doesn't help very much, especially when he's playing wing. They haven't exactly put him in a place to succeed, and he still produced. Tough going right now, but there's talent there, and no reason to give up on it so early.
