He also played 3 years in college. Forwards don't take as much time to develop as goalies. Tallon and Co. were 100% patient with Shore and it shows. Under any old regime, they would have pushed for him to come out of college early, imo.

Shawn Matthias should have spent at least three straight years in the AHL to develop his offensive game. If he was still property of Detroit I guarantee you they would have kept him down longer than we did. Detroit is the most patient organization and no matter where they draft they always get talent. It's scouting and proper development. No reason we can't develop prospects like they do.
