He's only 25 and plays a completely different style from the others. He shouldn't block anybody else from advancing up.
We are so excited about our defensive depth and prospects.....yet 3 of them have arrived over the past 2+ years and we are ready to push some of them aside and obsess over the younger ones.
Despres, Maatta, Bortuzzo arrive. Bortuzzo and Despres are already being dismissed and overlooked for guys 1-3 years younger in juniors and the AHL.
How long after Dumoulin, Pouliot, and Harrington arrive (and go through growing pains)are we bored of them and looking forward to the next wave?
