Poor development may have contributed, but I doubt Irving would have ever become more than a good backup in the NHL.
They put him on waivers the night before your roster had to be set so in order for someone to claim him they needed to send a player to the ahl that was waiver exempt (basically meaning if a rookie had made your team you had to say to bad and send him to the ahl). There was almost no shot at him being claimed it was simply a shot at Irving and his confidence.
