Would a year in the SEL help or hurt his development? Very obviously it would be a benefit. Would a year in the NHL help or hurt his development? I don't think anyone can say for sure. Kyle Turris was brought up the year after his draft, and that proved to be much too soon.

Personally, I'd let the kid grow in Sweden's top league for a season, and then bring him over for a full-time gig. Better safe than sorry, right?
