That is exactly what we were arguing about. How do you expect him to tap into some NHL potential when he won't play a role in the NHL at all until he is 30 years old? and shortly after 30 is close to 35. 33 is the age I said which is shortly after 30 and close to 35.
What kind of potential are you talking about this guy having? The potential to be a top 6 center in the AHL, then I agree he has potential but since this is a red wings board he has nearly 0 potential with the red wings.
Nope, it wasn't. The first argument stands still. You said he doesn't have any potential because he's "already" 28. You still haven't proved why and I doubt you ever can't.
Where did I say I expect him to even be an NHLer in the future? Where did I say that, please tell me? Or are you - yet again - trying to twist my words?
I wouldn't say 3 years is "shortly after", even if an average hockey career is 35 or something like that.
We're closer to the actual point. You see, I didn't say anything regarding this guys potential. It's all made up by you. Ahh, so because this is a Red Wings board that means we don't discuss about AHL and potential only means if you get to play in the NHL, right? I'm not gonna say he couldn't play in the NHL in the future, but I'm not gonna say he will either. And just because he doesn't have potential with the Red Wings doesn't mean he couldn't have a future in some other team. It's still called potential you know.
You still haven't realized that this whole conversation started when you stated (yet again) something you had no idea of and couldn't prove. I only questioned it and I still havent got a solid answer.
WHY CAN'T PLAYERS OVER THE AGE OF 28 STILL HAVE POTENTIAL AND IMPROVE THEIR GAME?
