You never know who will turn into what. Callahan had no hype whatsoever, missed training camp in 2006 with a knee injury, and just worked his way up. I don't think anyone would ever think he would become the captain, define the team, and be a 25 + goal scorer.
It's entirely possible that Sam Noreau becomes a fan favorite. and patrols the blueline for 15 years. You never know.
Well said cape crusader. One could say that log jams are exactly the kind of problems you want to have. You want your hockey organization to be in the position where very tough choices need to be made. It indicates at least a decent job is being done with scouting, drafting and player development.
