I've had them both on my team and released them both.
I couldn't afford to be as patient as you since my league doesn't utilize the peripherals like hits, block, PIM's.
They need to score and score often to have any value in my format...patience can be a killer.
Some do take more time to maturate but I do believe the really good ones make the most of their opportunity. These guys have not been sheltered and have received good minutes with very good linemates. There is talent in both organizations that is coming and will take the opportunity from them if they don't snap out of their funk.
Maybe we and their teams expected more than they have.
They both seemed to thrive on the 2nd line...not such a bad thing.
