This is yet another example where people need to stop thinking that our players will peak during their rookie season.

"Stepan will be a middling player between a 2 and a 3 liner. Oh wait, he already achieved that as a rookie? Guess he won't be improving anymore."

"McDonagh will be a second pairing defenseman. Oh wait, he did that as a rookie? Then no more improvement for him."


Instead of assuming rookies and sophomores won't get better, we need to change our assessment of players.
