Why can't Despres develop as Letang in the same conditions? I'm not a huge Despres fan, i'm huge Shero fan . His D-farm works unstoppable and that's really a great achievment.
Again, they are not the same player. Just because Shero drafts guys like Despres, Morrow, Pouliot, Maata, Harrington, and they have Demoulin, etc does not mean they are all going to turn into Letang.

Name me the other Kris Letang's in the NHL? Name me Erik Karlsson's in the NHL? There may be one or two similar players and that's out of a 30 team league.
