Being drafted 8 years ago he isn't really a young player. When most only play until mid 30's. That means from 18 to we'll say 35 of hockey years. So out of 17 possible years he only has 10 remaining. Look at the players from his draft year, Lecavlier, Stuart, Allen, Legwand, Antropov, Skoula, Regehr, Gagne, Gomez, Cheechoo, Richards, Horcoff. These players aren't young, some of they are or could have been UFA's this year. If a player has put in enough time to become an UFA right now they are not young. It's like when someone said montreal got a prospect in Samalienen, the guy is 26, he's not young let alone a prospect.

the 2 knocks on him are, he is probably only talented enough to be a 3rd liner, and he's small.

Boston sure had trouble with his outrageous contract demands and his asking to be a guaranteed starter last year.
