Looking at the Wheat Kings roster, I really like this kid's development opportunities. Next year Calvert, Lewadniuk, and Fehr are all too old to play in the WHL anymore, and Schenn will probably be in the NHL. That means Stone will be playing on the top line, whereas this year he was a 17 year old stuck behind a bunch of overagers and two top-10 picks. I suppose it's possible that he wilts with all the top defense-pairing coverage on him, but it's also possible that he breaks out with the first powerplay unit duties (which I assume he didn't have this year).
