I agree that he will likely be sent back down to junior. The question may be simply where do you play him? Our top two lines are pretty entrenched with Williams-Kopitar-Penner and Gagne-Richards-Brown and I doubt he'll be able to bump any of them. He's just not physically capable in all likelihood of being able to play on the lower lines either. Another year as the leader on a decent team and a (hopeful) stint with the WJC team will do him good. I see Toffoli as being two seasons away personally from full time duty, though he'll likely get a cup of coffee before then.
