he went 20th and was considered to have "fallen" into our laps.

he was considered to be one of the top "offensive" dmen in that draft. his numbers were goals/assist pretty good in oshawa and london his last year of juniors. 13/50/62 total.

and now we have mike del zaster who has gotten slower. less physical. less decisive. less creative. less offensive and much less productive.

not sure about him staying in juniors one more year. by all accounts, he was ready. his rookie years numbers for us were strong and he made the all rookie team that season.

he just hasnt taken that step. some guys never do.

he needs a change of scenery to try to jump start his career again.
You state that as if it's fact and not opinion. For all we know he could take that next step tonight lol.
