One last point before I get off the soapbox for the evening-- it's also really worth considering that the last 2 CBAs have not been good for players who need time to develop, due to the shortening of the deadlines to a player's UFA. If you're a team in contention, you don't HAVE the option of letting a player put it together in the AHL 4-5 years after they've been drafted like so many past players did. Waiver rules, the salary cap, UFA ages... all of these things can and have affected how players develop in this league. So, there's other factors to consider when we talk about development and lack thereof.
