Poor development may have contributed, but I doubt Irving would have ever become more than a good backup in the NHL.
players are rarely claimed off waivers to start a seasons. Teams send all their borderline guys to the AHL at the same time and the waiver wires are flooded with decent players. The only time a guy is claimed that time of year is if a team really likes the player a ton.
