Vlasic came to San Jose as a 19 year old rookie in 2006 and showed a world of potential with his smooth skating and crisp passing.  Two years later he had a career year with 6 goals and 30 assists and appeared to be on the cusp of joining the NHL's elite blueliners.  In the three seasons since, he has held his own as a solid member of the Sharks defensive corps, but his point totals have regressed.  Still, he just turned 25.  There's still time to become an All-Star.  But even if that doesn't happen, he has the chops to be a steady player for another decade.
