I would expect he has 2-3 years in the AHL ahead of him before he makes to the NHL (if he does).

Note - I hope it's OK that I'm posting here even though I'm not a Flyers fan. I just happen to follow NCAA hockey quite closely and figured I'd offer what insight I could.
Yeah Testwuide is a big guy, so I'm not surprised he is a late bloomer. Thanks for the info, all are welcome here.

What do you think of Gustafsson? a year in the AHL, then maybe NHL?
