I agree, Ferriero did impress me a little. His speed was good and he played good 4th line hockey.

Then you probably understand that different players have different styles of play. How good you'd think Gaborik would do in 4th line? Physically, after they enter the NHL everything is just tweaking their talent and capabilities to a certain direction. Mentally, whole different story. Physically, nothing wrong with the kid. Now, the question is: How can a kid underperform in a way he is underperformed so far, when he is regarded as one of the hardest working guys in the past? The talent can't just disappear suddenly, can it?
