And Thomas is nhl ready IMO. He had more goals than anyone who would be picked in the top 10 (RNH will probably play in the nhl this fall) and he already has the speed. He will shock a lot of people this year. Nobody thought Stepan was ready last year and look what he did. I think MZA will have a solid year too. He works hard and Torts loves the guy. He gets top 9 minutes and PP time on a nightly basis, I think we could see 15 goals and 40 points out of him.
I don't think that Gilroy scenario is likely -- he isn't going to sign with us under his qualifier just to be traded away. I still believe you should just treat him as a de-facto UFA -- he has zero trade value.

Regarding Thomas, what he did was impressive, but there have been plenty of players that have torn up the CHL but done noting at the NHL level. He could surprise and make the team out of camp, but I think it unlikely.
