Lazar Talks Prospect Development

Curtis Lazar’s development hasn’t gone the way many anticipated since he was drafted 17th overall in 2013. Tabbed as a defensively responsible player who oozed intangibles and had offensive upside, Lazar was viewed as the kind of productive, character player that the Senators lacked.
