I know he's not getting any younger, but it's possible that he just needs more time against a higher level of competition before he blooms. More time than others in his draft class.

But I can't deny his lack of development in Hartford this season is greatly discouraging.

Just trying to make us feel better?

I can understand that, I did that for a while with Lundmark. Ironically Lundmark was what really changed the things I look for and my cut-off for giving a general "bust" call.

As for the other comment, I didn't realize it until I looked. It was actually depressing because I didn't realize that many guys from that draft already saw an NHL arena.
