I cannot stress this enough.

I was thinking that all weekend while checking this thread. He was a 20 yo in his 4th junior season last year when he had a "breakout" season. Doesn't sound so impressive when most of his competition was 17, 18 and 19 year olds. He did, I thought, have some decent numbers for WBS in the playoffs though.

So then Talbot is an utter disappointment??
