The problem with HF is when a kid comes into the league and puts up 40 points they expect him to become a 60 point dman or see him dominate even further. What we've been seeing is that some of these kids come into the league well prepared and don't progress much beyond there initial season. Myers, Schenn are good examples of this and there are plenty more. There is a levelling off we see. The only exception to that I've seen is Karlson. Pietrangelo has certainly emerged but came into the league off a lengthy injury.

The question is what's Myers worth if he plays like his rookie season. A lot - and I think it's likely he'll return to that form. Giving up on young players like this is often a mistake.
Wait, what? Pietrangelo stayed in junior for 2 seasons...but wasn't injured long-term. He's had a couple of minor things, but nothing to make him miss extended time.
