I think we saw it, again not to Hi-jack the thread, because I think that Klefbom as it stands Right Now is a better option at #6 or 7 next over Peckham or Potter, however, we saw it with one year of Chris ****ing Pronger, the effect of a guy at that level on a team, so imagine having a guy slightly better for 20 years WITHOUT losing him to any serious injury? It's something you can't "model" unless you find one.
Injuries killed Blackburn, not being rushed. He was looking pretty good until suffering nerve damage in his shoulder.
