This is why I'm opposed to project type players that take a long time to develop.
At 23, Jason Smith had been traded from his drafting team, the NJ Devils to Toronto Maple Leafs.

He had played 164 NHL games already by then, and was a -1 in plus minus up to then. He spent three years in Toronto aged 23 - 25, but every year he was a minus player.

By age 25, he was traded to this third team, the Oil and every year there after he was a plus player (except for his last Oil year).
