If a player is going to make it, an extra year at a lower level isn't going to deter him. It may delay him a little, but it won't stop him from reaching the NHL. I have no worries about Thomas. He has the skills and the on-ice awareness. I think for him it's just about being physically ready for the NHL, and that will take time no matter where he's playing.
I don't think it would be that far of a stretch to say he will have a very good shot of making the NHL next season. Many players have done it.
