And as far as RNH's ability to chip in offensively is concerned I have no doubt that he could be useful, I just think he's a kid who's not ready for the nhl. If he had Kane's speed and agility that would be one thing but he doesn't. I think he'll get wrecked here playing against Tootoo, Burrows, etc.
People were saying the same thing about Hall last year, albeit for different reasons. Hopkins wont get "wrecked" if he were to play in the nhl next year, but it may not be what is best for his development.

I think he could use another year in Junior regardless.

We have nothing to lose by sending him there either.
