I don't mean to be a buzzkill, but Thomas is starting to get pretty overrated based on some of the comments here. Lots of 5'9 players have put up big numbers and failed to make it in the big leagues. While I think Thomas has the potential to be something at this level, let's not pencil him into the line-up yet.
I'm not penciling him into anything. I have no idea if he's ready. My comments were specifically directed towards the poster that said Thomas would be better served in the OHL than on our third line.
