I thought those traits epitomized someone who would benefit from the NCAA route: much higher practice/game ratio than major junior, better weight training facilities and strength coaching, etc.
well he might be a tad bit raw, but the kid definitely has the overall size and skill, that I can see him being a very good player at a young age imo. I think he would be better suited for the WHL because of his huge size already, and that he will be able to learn on the job, playing as a 16 year old, instead of fighting for ice time in college. Though he may go USHL route (including the USNDP), but being a high pick like that for the WHL, you have to believe that Everett as well believes he will come over much sooner then later.
I dont think that college is a bad place for him to go at all, it is just more of a gut feeling as to where I think he can benefit the most early on....
