It certainly tells you more about his chances to be a good NHL player.
Almost all players that make the NHL improve at that age. The case where
a player is noticeably worse, and still becomes a good player, is rare.

Still it does happen. In Lablanc's case, I think his development was harmed
by constantly trying out for new teams. And then he had the sort of injuries
that may have prevented him from building the power/strength he could have
had.
But he's only 22. And it seems like the Habs get it now. So I still think he'll be
a good NHL player. I just hope it's with the Habs.
