Yzerman was a top 5 pick whose game was based on his skating ability coming onto a not so good team. Mantha is a mid 1st round pick who is projected to be a big bodied forward but is too skinny to do that and needs to improve his work ethic coming onto a team expecting to at least make a push for the conference finals. See a difference?

Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

While I agree with your overall sentiment, there's still something to be said for youth.

5 of 7 d men are under 30 and one of the projected forward lines will have 3 rookies. That's plenty of youth.
