People are allowed to like/dislike certain young players - it's not always about 'patience.' I assume you are referring to DZ. He's a solid player, but his play in the physical playoffs worries me. The fact that he is supposed to be an offensive defenseman, but seems incapable on the PP worries me. I don't hate him, but you'd better believe that I'd consider moving him IF the offer is right. That doesn't necessarily mean I'm 'inpatient.' I'm just not overly impressed by this players future.
That's actually my point.
He has scored 41, 37, 37 (Edit: Just to be crystal clear, he has scored 21 points this season which translates to 37-38 for full season) points in 3 or his 4 years in the NHL.
Look around the league how many 22 year olds have produced like he has?
Dman hit their prime around 25-26 years old. Given what he has accomplished so far, I can only imagine what he'll be like in 3 years.
Now, I can understand people are not impressed by his current youthful inconsistencies, but I don't understand how they are not intrigued by his potential.

And yeah sure, everybody is tradable at the right price.
