It is about environment. If you bring rookies into a terrible environment, they are more likely to fail or find inconsistent individual success. Whereas, if you bring them into a sound environment, they can be placed into a roll where they succeed annually. Take for example Big Ben and Joe Flacco in the NFL - great teams, great environments, were able to led a team as rookies to playoff success as Qbs. The same applies in hockey. Rookies on this team would have a highly successful coaching staff, a room full of leaders, and several superstars to boot. This is a great organization from top to bottom. I wouldn't necessarily expect huge individual success, but I would expect them to fit in to the team concept.
