Dennis Savard, Paul Coffey, Ray Bourque, Doug Gilmour, they don't have the same problem, for example, and are contributors right away. Yzerman is a minor leaguer.
Not yet, I only adjusted the short list of guys mentioned in the notes for this update. I've been adding more since then, I'll take a look at all of the above guys. Bear in mind, though, that unless you're use annual recalculation, there's still going to be a lot of room for variation in the level the player arrives in the league at.

Edit: thinking about it, I see a little flaw in the way the development routines work for guys with long careers at a high level of play, that'd affect the way they look in early seasons. I'll see if we can tweak that a bit.
