Dal Colle giving it his best shot so far this year and Toews is making a case for a call-up soon

Imagine if MDC finds his game. Is it possible players like him take longer to develop? I could not reply to your post for some reason chief.

Wouldn't be totally out of the question. Mark Jankowski was taken in the 2012 draft and has just very recently turned into a useful NHL'er.

It's rare, but it's not impossible.

I know MDC is a bigger guy so maybe his skating and overall game take more time?

Not a chance in hell. -1 for MDC and a -3 for Toews. Total busts. They’re not getting called up when you have Hickey kicking arse with a +5.

His skating was pretty bad, it was definitely a big part of what was holding him back.

Bigger forwards have taken longer to develop. I'm not saying he is the same player but Bertuzzi took longer to develop.

Yea not everyone develops on the same schedule and it would be a nice surprise if MDC ended up being a useful NHL'er. I've pretty much just written him off as a career AHL'er at this point, so some success is nice to see. Still a small sample, he's gotta keep it up if he's ever going to get a real shot to stick with the big club.

MDC looked very unsure on his skates and not just slow during his brief callup last year. It makes sense to give him more time to see if things start to click. MDC would not get much in a deal at this point anyway.
