A couple of seasons in the AHL will determine if he is a capable NHL'er but I would not be looking for him to step up anytime soon.
What in the world gives you this impression? You're not a half lawyer/half scout are you? Just because the kid didn't make the jump straight to pro does not mean he's a project. He was widely considered to be one of the best D-men in the Q. That's a good start. Let's see how he does in Manitoba before we start labelling him as a 'project'.

Remember, he made it pretty far in camp too. That's saying something considering this team doesn't have many strong defensive prospects to speak of.
