Odds say that he's going to be a great AHL, but not an NHLer, but I would bet that he won't be in the ECHL. In fact, I would bet some money that he'll play 40 games (=half a season) in the NHL before he'll play 40 games in the ECHL.

At most, he might get sent down for a brief stint in the ECHL just to get him up to pro speed. I don't see him tweening from ECHL to the AHL and back. I think at the very least, he'll be a top echelon player in the AHL, and he stands at least some chance to make the NHL.

Oh, and another difference between Jam and Kale is that Jam did it alone with no gifted scorers around, while Kale had Nail on his team - yes, the same Nail that will go #1 overall in the strong 2012 draft.
